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:

Karen, this is so interesting and a wonderful way to let nature do the dyeing for you, the colours are gorgeous. Do you have a quilting project in mind for the fabric.
