40 yards of fabric

Beth and I got together to dye fabric and each dyed 40 yards. For anyone who hasn't hand-dyed fabric, that's a LOT of work!!

We did 5-step gradations of 8 different colors, using zip-lock baggies.

These pails show 4 of the gradations being soaked/rinsed before being put in the washing machine.

Greens, dark browns, dark oranges, and oranges.

Light browns, grays, yellows, and golds.
