Love it!  If you sewed several together end to end it could make a really cool scarf!
Ooh, that's a good idea, too. I would probably want to do it with silk or something. Not just plain cotton.

That is beautiful, HK! Hmm...I wonder if you could do something like this with silk and kool-aid (in concentrated form, from a dropper) for the dye. Silk is a protein fiber. It might work... Smiley

I'm afraid of working with dyes that might be poisonous, because I need to use my kitchen as my work-space.

I'll bet you can, as long as it doesn't spread too much (make those rubber bands tight!)
I would have been wary of dyeing in the kitchen, too. I dyed these in the bathtub and stuck them in plastic bags to microwave.  The dye never really made it to the kitchen.

Woohoo!  I made one too!  Thanks for the inspiration!!  I made some big ones, too but just one color, they are still soaking...not sure how they will come out.  This one hasn't been washed.  I don't have a microwave for your awesome trick with RIT (that's what I used), so I think I'm just NOT going to wash it.  haha...thanks again!!

Awesome!  I love yours! 
I think you can steam it (like in a vegetable steamer) on the stove. Just wrap it in plastic wrap first? Not sure though.
Or, just don't wash it, ha ha!

Oh!  I hadn't thought of steaming.  I thought I could bake it on really low temp, but idk, still might catch fire!  Steaming is a great suggestion!  Grin

HippieKender your craft work is just awesome...
But how did you manage to color it in such a symmetric form, did you fold that piece of cloth before coloring it???
Would like to know its details.....

Thank you so much!
Yes, the fabric was folded and bound before adding the dye. There is a link in the first post for the video tutorial I followed.

Baking would work, but you have to have the piece wet. It's like putting wooden skewers on the grill, if they're wet they won't get burnt!

Also a great suggestion!  I'll have to do some experimenting!
