Talking a few more things for baby

On the left is a wool interlock sleep sack (with little stars on the snaps ), then two prefitteds I converted -- one side-snapping, one snapless (started as an experiment and now I think I'm going to do the rest of our pfs ), and a teensy tiny newborn cover using the LaDiDa pattern (my first successful and presentable use of FOE ). I also LWI dyed a couple of crib sheets and some cotton velour for the crib set, but it's too dark for pics of those so I'll be back tomorrow!



here are the dye jobs

This is the cotton velour I did for the back of the blanket (along with the panel I'm going to use on the front)


and the crib sheet (there was a little more white left than I wanted, and the colors didn't seem to take as vibrantly as the velours I've dyed so the red looks a little pinkish but I still like it )

low water immersion, you basically dye it in as little water as possible and let the colors spread gradually (i used the same technique with the red and purple at the bottom of the post)
