This is a drive-by post with just a few photos from my weekend of indigo dyeing. There will be more details next time about the process and the experience.

I love the soft look of the fabrics in the bottom photo.
Wow! Very cool. Love the way the flower fabric dyed in the 4th photo.
did you use natural indigo?
I did a small course a few years ago and a part from the smell (awful) I loved it. It creates such an amazing colour!!
yep, natural indigo! and the smell was dreadful…like something died in my kitchen. or maybe more like an extended fart?
We must be on the same wavelength! Indigo dyeing has been on my mind for a couple of weeks and I am just waiting for some good weather so we can do it all outside. I look forward to reading more about your experience.
oooooooh, I love indigo!
Love that color! Especially with the little printed fabric. Pretty!
Oh!! I love this!! I was just thinking about fabric dye techniques last night! That fabric looks amazing in the new color!
i’ll be interested to read about the details. i’m scared to try indigo because of that whole “it can burst into flames” thing. or am i just making that up? i swear i read that somewhere…
love the yarn and the tie-dyed piece
beautiful, as always
Oh oh oh those geometrics!! Really C, you did a great job.
Wow, I can’t wait to hear more about this! The results are amazing. It’s hard to pick a favorite! If you twist my arm, I’ll pick the yarn, but the fabrics are incredible, too!
Indigo dyeing is something I’ve been meaning to do for a while now. What you’ve done is totally inspirational and fantastic!
You do the blues so well.
Gorgeous! I’m looking forward to reading more about the process.
so pretty! i love it all!
Love the fabric in the second pic! Oh and kudos to creating smell-a-blog, using natural indigo smells like an “extended fart”. I’ll be laughing about this all day! LOL
My inner cowboy loves the indigo!
Just as I suspected – you’ve been up to all sorts of fabulousity!!! Love it all, as usual. ;o)
It smelled bad but I love the results. Where did you get your indigo?
Purdy! I love the overdyed commercial print and I’m impressed with the crispness of your resist pieces.
Fantastic! Love the idea of a “drive by post”, and I’m looking forward to hearing more about it, too.
I’m a big indigo fan but lazier than you (yeah, as if THAT is news)- I am always happy to jump in on someone else’s dye pot. Indigo is like magic.
I’m especially crazy about your overdye of the flowered fabric.
This looks like it was fun, can’t wait to hear more!
Love, love, love….
Oh, those last two leave me a little tingly. Looking forward to hearing more about the adventure.
Beautiful! Can’t wait to hear more about this!
I can’t wait to see/hear more about this!! (I am currently brewing a pot of walnut stock — easy-peasy natural dyeing, plus the walnuts are all from my own back yard.)
