    Those fabrics turned out gorgeous!!! I love the look of hand dyed fabrics. I noticed she doesn't mention what kind of dyes she used in the tutorial. Do you think it matters?

    We get PLENTY of snow around here. Even if it doesn't snow much, it never gets warm enough in the winter to really melt it off so I think this is a great method to try for my area.

    if you plan to make something that will be washed, as i did, then use a dye that is as permanent as possiible. i bought my dye at

    http://www.dharmatrading.com/html/eng/1137-AA.shtml


    and the color lasted a long time. i used it for kid's clothing and it got washed a lot. if you carefully follow the links, they give you a good idea of what you need.

    if you're planning to make, say, a wallhanging, that might only get vacuumed, i would use rit and go cheap. why not? but i would not use as much water as they recommend. in the final rinse, you would lose a lot of color anyway, and you could keep rinsing until you're happy.
