Whether you're looking to refresh, transform or personalise your clothing, soft furnishings or fabric accessories, or to dye fabric so that you can create brand-new items, this book has you covered. This simple but rich and informative book contains everything you need to know to start dyeing. It shows you how to create 12 dazzling dye effects - from tie-dyeing and dip-dyeing to creating checks, lines, droplets and bubbles - and then shows you how to put them into practice to create 21 gorgeous sewn projects, ranging from bags and pillows to towels, scarves and clothing. It offers advice on dyeing printed fabrics and working with a base colour, as well as guidance on washing and maintaining dyed fabric. The dyeing techniques are created either in the washing machine, by hand or in the microwave, and clear instructions are given for each method. The book focuses on readily-available chemical dyes, but the dye effects could transfer to natural types as well. All the sewing steps are explained clearly, with handy illustrations to provide clarity where necessary.
