Dying to Match

I've been a busy girl...in my sweat shop!

I just love the simpleness of this dress. I thought I would try something different from my usual. 

I'm always drawn to bright and bold fabrics, but this delicate fabric got me! 

As I was making it I thought it would be cute to add an eyelet lace to the bottom trim, so I dug through my stash and I found a very stark white lace. Ouch...this won't work!


So....off to the kitchen....TEA DYE! 


I put boiling hot water in this glass with 2 tea bags and my white lace, I let it sit for about 20 mins! Then rinsed with water and threw it in the dryer...


Ahhhhh....so much better!! 


All done..size 3!



I love tea dying...have you ever tried?

I'll be back soon with a new project.

Are you ready for summer?? 

Hugs,
