Melanie (no blog) asked a few dyeing questions. I rinse the dyed fabric in lukewarm water till the water comes out fairly clear (not completely clear.) I gently squeeze the excess out, but it's still usually dripping...and then roll in an old towel. Lay the towel and the fabric out flat till just damp and then iron on another old towel. I have a few old bath towels that I use for this and I just launder them with the rest of my laundry. Ok, so if you're dyeing several pieces of fabric, can you keep using the same towel to roll them in and lay flat? I only do this if the dye colors are very similar, for example if they're all shades of browns. I did that with the fabrics on this post.
I hope I've answered your questions Melanie :) If there are anymore, please feel free to ask and I'll try to answer them as best I can.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone, and I hope wherever you are the sun is shining. And if it isn't, you can join me, "The sun'll come out tomorrow..."
