~This is the, for now, permanent cotton dye station set-up on the patio. I have busily been dying cotton diapers, cotton flannel, and cotton terry cloth to make “stuff” for the newest baby-to-be. The colors in the containers are: ocean blue, jungle green, tulip red, sunny yellow and my recipe for orange. I keep the sodium carbonate container close at hand to add to the bucket of soak water as a mordant before dying. I also add it to the dye baths.
Burb cloths made from the dyed cotton diapers and cotton flannel.
Daughter Emily modeling a burb cloth. Her arms were not long enough to take pics of both her face and the burb cloth. Thanks to Em for pictures of the burb cloths. I forgot to take any before I gave them to her.
The hand-dyed cotton terry cloth is being used on bibs. Will feature those in another post.
