This is awesome! I can't wait to try it!

Two things:
Can you do this with any fabric (like OBV)?

What else could I make with the fabric? I think it looks absolutely awesome but am having a mind block on what I could do with it. DD is not in cloth now and the coming baby has all the diapers he/she needs, but I"m sure there is a great Christmas present idea I'm just not thinking of. What do you creative ladies think?

:mrgreen:

I'm going to try it on my dd's Christmas shirt. I'm going to do her shirt in red and green swirls to match her red and green fleece longies. You could a blanket too....O that would be pretty :drif:

it will work with all cellulose fibers, cotton, bamboo, hemp, rayon.

wovens you can make I spy bags, flax packs, napkins, bags, wristlets etc.

bamboo you can make hats, tops, pants, wipes, blankies etc. The possibilities are endless

What type of die did you use? I'm sure it would depend on the fabric you were using right?

My DS isn't in dipes anymore either, so I'm going to make myself some gorgeous mama pads and some washcloths for the ladies in my family. I'm sure there's no end to the cool things you dye - clothes, blankets, bags, hair ribbons, etc. You could make a scrapbook/photo album cover, bookmarks, photo frame, etc (just put a thin piece of the died material over the cover or frame or whatever). Oh! I need more time!! :)

How would you do a more 'swirly' swirl?? LOL Does that even make sense? One that isn't as patterned??
