For many of us the idea of using fabric dyes conjures up memories of trying to freshen up a washed-out, sun-faded garment by dyeing it, often with unpredictable results. The technological process of making dyes has advanced, however, and the palette of shades available has broadened. In addition, dyes are much more stable, producing cloth that retains its vibrant hue. This book shows you some of the ways in which fabric can be dyed quickly and easily. It includes the familiar tie-dyeing, which can be used in both controlled and random ways, as well as dip-dyeing, double dyeing and marbling, and space-dyeing in which a random outcome gives it a unique charm. For those who enjoy more intricate work, there are dyeing techniques for patchwork, fabric etching and embroidery, which will further enhance your fabric pieces. If you have a passion for creating unique crafts, you are sure to find inspiration here.
