Here' a link to a piece of my own hand dyed fabric which is for sale on Ebay along with some cross stitch kits and other things. I can't seem to create a click-able link so you'll need to copy this and paste it into your browser. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/230809476974?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649#ht_500wt_1202

It's a close friend's birthday in a week so because she cross stitches i thought she'd love a piece of hand dyed fabric to stitch something on. So i came up with this using the Flamingo Pink, Sunflower yellow and Bahama blue Dylon dyes. I am very pleased with how it came out and i will be doing more like this again.

Mystical Dawn. I absolutely love how this has turned out. I used the Violet and the blue dyes but only a little so it didn't come out too dark. I rolled the fabric up and when i put it in the tub i rolled it round until it looked like a Swiss bun and i dribbled each dye over the fabric in different places and this is how is came out.

I am waiting for my Dylon dyes that where dispatched on Saturday. I was hoping they'd arrive today but they didn't Had an idea for a hand dyed fabric which i'll do once i get all 7 colours of the rainbow. I will dye the fabric so it has all 7 colours but they will be pale not bright and i will be calling that fabric "Faded Rainbows". I so want to see how this idea will come out so i so want to get all 7 colours soon.
