Yesterday eve I finally dyed my white dress, for the flower parade I wil attemp at the end of this week. The theme is "flower power" and that fits perfectly to this tie-dye technique I think.
So I bundled glassstone stars in it, tied it all and started dyeing..... hoping all the materials in this dress would absorb the colors.
Last picture is not a very good one, but wil make a better one later on the day
So today I finally got the guts to start withthe nunofelting dress project. I dreamt many nights about how Icould do it, but I nevertehless descided to make a trial dress for a doll first.
So I started with messuring the doll and making a resist with a schrunk factor of 1,5
Covered the resist on botth sides with linen fabric and chiffonsilk and layered 2 layers of wool upon it. Wetted everything down and started rolling . This is after it was finished, way too small for the babydoll, but I think a Barbie dooll will look great with it
And the other side of the new fabric:
My daughter whom I wanted to felt a dress for said:” wow mummy that is a nice small dress!! “ Me: “ I want to make something like this for your communionday” Janna: “No Mummy I don’t want a felted dress. I want a dress made with fabric. “ ( ) Me: “uhhh? But felt is fabric… Janna: No felt.
Hmmm dilemma for me….
Meg being helpfull: “Mummy but I would love to wear a dress like that!”
Enjoy your sunday!!
