Kaffe Fasset

I have been on an exebition with Kaffe Fasset works. Very colorfull and inspired. Bought some fabric of him, but has to mix it with other fabric in only one color. In fact I don't like that things becomes too colored.

I have been busy sewing for the last period sewing on my new serger, but I have also made a quilt for my brother. He wants the colors red and black for things to his living room. I found some wonderful fabric with poppies at Hannes shop

The fabric inspired me and combined with black fabric I think it would make great color combination. I made the quilt simple and used the beautiful fabrics. It was very fun to make and I know he likes it.

I also managed to make 3 cusins for his sofa.

My friend Lone told me how to use the snow for dying facric.
It sounded funny, so as the snow came, I tried it.
First I washed fabric in soda, salt and water and spred it out in the bokses.
Then I filled them with snow. When they were filled I mixed some dye and spred it ower the snow.
It took 2 days before the snow was melted. I washed the colars out and washed and dried the fabric.
Here are the result:
