MY WORST DYE JOB EVER


Following my theory of more is better.. I wanted to make a miniature applique quilt out of Silk Charmuese. I wanted peach and ecru. I set out to dye.. I guess I used too much dye.. this is what I got .

This picture doesn't even begin to show the intensity of the orange... and ECRU? I'll overlook that the light color dye turned almost black green when it hit the water... I thought.. okay.. silk doesn't dye as dark as cotton...

Maybe I used too much dye... Gee.. do ya think?

I know they aren't the colors you wanted, but they are my kind of colors. I think they are gorgeous...

I love those colors, especially the bright orange. Maybe you should sell them. Jen
