Oops something went wrong....

So I was doing well, making drawings, stitches, preparing my dye bath....

And after rinsing...

Okay...read the tutorial Nienke ... shouldn't you better tighten the strings...Oops.

Let's try it again: 

And for now all in the same dark bluegreen dyebath:

The results will be posted on saturday.
They are great by the way but I would not recommend repeating this process as the thread really weakened by the soda and it was difficult to get it properly tightened.


  1. Hope you could laugh at yourself....

  2. I bet the results will be really cool with the double dipping!!

  3. I look forward to your second results on these samples.
