Thread beads and blue…

Over the weekend I did a bit of dyeing. Not all of it was successful, but I do like these pieces… Those beautiful marks are made with rubber bands wrapped around the outside of the fabric. I’d like to repeat the experiment sometime with the fabric wrapped around a vegetable can and held on with…
