Day 4 of My 25 Days of Make & Give- Behind the Scenes

All creatives know that a good deal of preparation goes into a finished product and with that in mind, I thought I’d share some photos from my works in progress! Above is a cool shot taken as 12 cups of sunshiney marigold blooms simmered in the pot for a organic dyeing session! I decided several weeks ago, on my day off, to try some organic fabric and fiber dyeing. And it was a good thing I did it that day as we had an early and hard frost the following morning! I loved the experience and my results were incredible! I dyed with cotton, linen and rayon.

Yesterday, I set three Procion MX Reactive dye baths outside.

Indigo was my color choice. No spoiler alerts will be divulged on the materials used however!

And of course the handmade journals are well under! I have three types this year!

My studio is all a buzz with the flutter of holiday making! Stay tuned to see more finished Make & Give pieces! I’m now wondering what’s going on in your creative spaces? Please do tell!

B-Inspired!
