I though I'd share this with my stitchy friends.

There's a laundry product out  called 'Color Catcher'. It's by the same folks who help you get stains out by yelling (hint, hint)!  Wink

It's a sheet that goes in the wash and captures fabric dye bleeds.  A lady in my stitch group recommended it, and I've been using it on some new projects and it works very well! It is a little expensive but my newest projects involve embroidered clothing, so it's been worth it to me.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Since it's made for absorbing dyes it works really nicely for "painting" them with too.  Sunnysidey showed me that, then she embroiders them and makes them into little books or ATCs, or covers buttons with 'em.  Neato, huh?
