Win some beautiful faux snow-dyed fabric!

And the winner is…”mframe” who loves the black orchid snow dye! 

The lovely ladies over at Sew Mama Sew has put together a huge list of blogs hosting giveaways this week, if you’ve got some time, head on over and enter some more!

I have ONE MORE WEEK of teaching…and then I’m out for summer – WAHOO! The first thing I’ve got to do once teaching is done is record a video and write up an article on what I call “Faux Snow Dyeing”. I live in the desert part of Southern California, so there’s not much snow around these parts, but I have an ice machine that makes crushed ice, so I can use that to do my version of snow dyeing:

Candied Fabrics Faux Snow Dyed Fabric

This process fascinates me because I can’t get this particular visual texture any other way, and it is so lovely. It reminds me of texture that Impressionist painters often get, and I love it!

Although I may have used a couple of these pieces, the bulk are sitting in a bin marked “pretty pieces”. I know I’ll get around to using them at some point, but I thought it would be nice to share too! So, if you’d like one of these pretties in your stash, simply leave a comment! Tell me which piece is your favorite!

NOTE: Comment moderation is turned on, so don’t be worried if your comment doesn’t shop up right away – I have to approve it first!

Today is “Tie Dye Day” in my Mother Earth Chemistry class (here are pix from last year’s fun) so I’m going to be having a busy day!

This giveaway will close Friday the 25th at midnight Pacific, I’ll use to draw a winner and I will send it out (internationally if necessary) the following Monday, so please make sure to leave the correct email and check your email this weekend.

Good luck! Don’t forget to check out more giveaways over at Sew Mama Sew!

  8. Absolutely beautiful. Hard to pick a favorite, but I kept going back to the Natural Primaries.
