So, last month on my trip to Virginia, I found some beautiful trims.
One in particular is so pretty, ( its that blue eyelet up there) I'm not sure if I'll ever find a project that's "worthy" of it. And I like it too much to sell it. hmmmm...what a dilemma.
Now, I have lots of white and cream eyelet trims that I've picked up at yard sales, so I was thinking, "why not try dying some of them?" And I did. Here they are in their color bath...
The large piece is an eyelet border fabric with a white background; it turned out to be a sky blue color. And the small trim is cream ruffle eyelet, and it turned out to be a perfect robin's egg blue-green color! If you're familiar with the Martha Stewart paint color 'Vintage Map', its very close to that. (Oh, BTW, that just happens to be the color I've picked out to repaint my sewing room).
I plan on dying more and listing some on the website. But really, its not hard at all if you want to give it a try yourself. A little messy though, so you definitely want to wear rubber gloves.
