New Passel of Silk Ribbons
This last weekend was rainy and dismal so I found myself in the studio and got inspired to dye ribbons. I solid dyed, dye painted for a watery, heathered look, and tea dyed silk of dupioni, charmeuse, chiffon, crepe, habotai, velvet, and silk cord. I dyed rosy pink, deep red, cobalt blue, mermaid green, ecru, chestnut, dusty teal, and burnt orange spice.
Yesterday I measured the ribbons, wound them onto cards, and printed the information on each. Next I had to photograph each card with different views. This all takes a bit of time and I have just now finished listing them in Etsy. Please take a look.
