Here's a couple items I sent to hawkeyes_girl in a recent personal swap.

Hand-dyed wrap skirt. My son helped with the dyeing, we had a blast making it:



And a TM-inspired coin purse. All hand-dyed fabric.

Nice bright hat, k-star!

such lovely fabrics, abbeeroad!  What type of dye did you use?  The skirt is really a nice design, too!

Thanks guys. The dye is just RIT (maybe some Dylon or Tulip thrown in...all available at retail stores like Walmart).

We dyed the skirt using squirt bottles. Here's a pic of DJ squirting some dye on.



I scrunched it in a bucket for a while to help the colors spread and then washed it. It came out more purple than I had hoped, but still pretty cool.

That looked like great fun Abbie!  Grin

I'm not counting this as a project yet, I just wanted some feedback from you guys.
I'm not sure if this one is a YAY or a NAY.

I know I need to clean up my glue technique but this one was just my trial piece.

Do you have beads, because that would look great on the wreath as well. Even if you don't it looks great the way it is.

I'm going with "try the beads," mostly because I'm not a big fan of sequins. Roll Eyes

I've finished 2 more items, but they're for a swap so no pics yet.

I do have some beads but my craft room is a pile of boxes in a corner at the moment and the sequins were on hand.
Thanks for the feedback, I believe I will make a few more now  Cheesy

Just had a message that another one of my dotees has found it's way safely home so here she is in all of her sequinned glory  Grin
