Success!! I gave it another try, this time rinsed in COLD water first and used "fresh" dyes. I'm pleased with the results and will definately give this another try with other colors while we still have snow. I think I'll use some of this fabric in a challenge piece I will be completing for March, we'll see.
You never know what you are going to get from this process, that's part of the fun! The fabric looks much more beautiful in person, but this is the best I can do with photos. It's fun, give it a try!!
Beth, who took time out of her busy day to answer some of my questions. Also many thanks to Wil who gave me some helpful ideas with freeze dyeing. Much appreciated!
