I've gone a bit mad over the whole fabric dyeing thing lately. If there's a website, a book, a flickr group associated with dyeing I've been there!!
So I thought I'd share a few resources just in case you're as keen (obsessed) as I am.
I've just devoured this most excellent book by Malka Dubrawsky of A Stitch in Dye. This woman makes me want to throw all my craft stuff away, build a garage and lock myself in it make beautifully patterned fabric all day!
A truly fantastic resource is Fabric Dyeing 101 where Melissa shares and absolute treasure trove of information on all aspects of fabric dyeing. She has the philosophy that information should be shared - now that's my kind of woman!
Then there is Darlene of Shibori Borealis, I just stare in wonder at her work.
I couldn't finish this post without mentioning the lovely Sara of Willow and Moo who is the very person who peaked my interest in dyeing and helped me through the first stages. Her blog is a real inspiration of colour and gorgeously made things. Check out her metres of rainbow fabric on there at the moment.
Did I mention Flickr? Just head on over and type in "hand dyed" or similar or look into groups. I'm a member of Hand Dyed and I Dyed for Etsy.
Stay tuned for more adventures in fabric dyeing.
