exhausting the dye pot

more reds

never before such a successful dye extraction! rich and deep color with a big yield  of dyeing pigment.

there was still  a lot of dye that could not be  thrown away so i started looking for things to dye to use the remaining color.  the above is a piece of cotton from a recouped dress. it has some  leaves which were previously wrapped and dyed and a resulting ghost shibori. the outcome was mildly interesting, but needed color in a bad way to balance the dirty dish water browns. it doesn't look bad now. there will be some stitching also and i want to do something to highlight the snap on the top left .

there are still  more pieces in the pot . some felts from friend fabienne, yes the same one who yet has to set up her blog :) 
if you're at facebook check some  photos of her awesome work. she has influenced me with her dyeing.
