Batik and Printing Day...

Saturday came quick... and like always you do think you have all the time in the world to prepare for something... and so it was.. even this time..:O))

But I think we did well.. 
So here is some pictures from my Saturday with dyes and prints!

We had three different pigments to chose from

I chose light green for my batik...
And this is how mine turned out...
A bit pale.. but you all know me..lol..
But i like the almost transparent white pattern..:O))
But then on the other hand we dont know what we will be using this for ...
so who knows..maybe I did the right choice...or not!!!

My friends did chose redyellow or purple or a mix between those,
and mixed ink for the prints... 

Went home with a can of fabric that were supposed to be in the remaining colour bath for about 12 hours...
And I just took it out this morning..

The next month we will have Patchwork..;o))
and well...can say that I feel a little bit more comfortable with that ..
or maybe ... it will be the hardest month of them all..lol..
yepp.. think so.. because I am not in charge..lol..

Still having my...#€%&%€# cold...
and an eye infection as a bonus this morning...

Maybe a visit to the doc have to be done in the morning..

Back to sewing on my Butterfly Garden...
See you all!!


  1. That looks fun! I love the way it turned out.

    Hope you're feeling better soon!

  2. They look fantastic!! I love the color and the process. I hope you feel better soon and are able to get to the doctor.

  3. Hey Stina! What fun it looks like you had playing with dies and colour! Love all of the colours, especially your green and aqua colours - can't wait to see what you make from them now. Hope your icky cold gets better soon so you feel better! Bear Hugs! KRIS
    PS. the verification word is "beare" how appropriate for a 'bearie' kind of gal like me! :0) BH! KRIS

  4. I am wearing a sweater today the colour of your first dye and print. It all looks great. Sounds like you need some antibiotics for that cold and sore eye. Hope you will soon be on the mend.

  5. I think that your batik fabrics turned out lovely...both the light and the dark ones :) :) :) Will you use them in a quilt? I'd save them for just the right project. Maybe you could make a quilt out of nothing but batik prints? That would look nice!!!!

    Hope you feel better soon...colds....boo...eye infection...booo....Get better soon, please ;) :) :) You have a lovely blog. Thanks for sharing all your creations here :) :) :)

    Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

  6. How fun! Fiber dying is next on list! I say fiber because I want to do yarn too :)

  7. Hi Stina, It looks like you all had some fun playing with those pigments. I love the lovely soft tones you got in your fabric.

  8. Hejsan Stina

    Skönt att du får ditt favoritområde nästa gång.Jag tror dina tyger med vissa tillägg av andra tyger kan bli till riktigt vackra minikviltar e dyl.

    I byttan är det bra att använda lite mer färg än bekrivningen ger för handen och sedan kan också tiden förlängas.Men oj så roligt det är att färga.Jag har färgat ett antal gånger på kursen och jag får aldrig nog.
    Ha en fin vecka

  9. I also love your transpernat patterns.Wow so great.

  10. Hej Stina!

    Visst har du fått några läckra batiktyger att sätta saxen i framöver.
    Ta nu hand om din envisa förkylning!

  11. Oj vad jag får härliga minnen från när jag gick kursen. Upplägget är något annorlunda ser jag. Färgning är så roligt och det är så kul att sedan använda det man gjort. Det där tyget kan du säkert trolla fram något riktigt fint av!

  12. That looks like great fun, Stina!!
    It brought back memories of tye-dying my teeshirts way back in the seventies!! LOL!!
    All the best to you!!

  13. Wow! This is something I would never think to try.
    It looks like fun and you have lovely fabrics to show for it.


  14. Pretty cool. I am so sorry you are still feeling bad. Get well soon.

  15. It's good fun experimenting with dyes. I love the lighter green.

  16. Dying is so much fun! I love the way your fabrics turned out.

  17. Wow! I love it. Thanks! Greetings!
