Indigo Dye

Experiments with pre-reduced indigo dye.

The best thing about summer is that it’s the ideal time to dye fabric. This was my first time setting up an indigo dye vat.  I love watching the fabric coming out of the vat with it’s strange green tint, then slowing changing into indigo as it hits the air.

  1. Beautiful! Wasn’t this so much fun? And you really need to take a 2nd class as you learn so much the first time. I need to share mine on my blog. Can’t wait to see what you make with it!

  2. Absolutely stunning fabrics Theresa!! Oh how much fun this must have been dying these! How did you create the flower shape in the middle of that one fabric? Gorgeous!!
