Hi Candy,I saw you on the Pokey Bolton show Quilting Arts Episode 703 and I loved the results you achieved dyeing duck cloth. What is the brand name of the dye you use? Your work is stunning. Thank you.
Thank you so much Debbie! She is talking about my "For the Birds" messenger bag:
that I showed on Quilting Arts TV. (I'm also teaching a class on how to make this in Chicago at the Create Retreat on August 24). Anyway, I use Procion MX Fiber Reactive Dyes. They are professional fabric dyes, and lucky for us, easily available online from:
I've written about how to use these dyes several times:
- On Design Hole Online I wrote a tutorial for dyeing slipcovers.
- Here's a tutorial for a rainbow of Tie Dyed Onesies over at my site
- Over at Sew Mama Sew I wrote a series of posts about dyeing fabric, here's a whole post about resources for dyeing available on the web.
OK, who's next? Got a question for me? Ask away!
