Hand Dyed Fabric






I now have packs of fabric in 6 graduated shades. Each piece is a little over 1/8 metre.

These are particularly useful for applique where you often want several shades of one colour to add depth to flowers or leaves.

I have 16 colours so far. I can do other colours on request; larger or smaller pieces, shorter or longer graduations.

I use two 100% cotton fabrics, a soft lawn at $9.50 per pack, and broadcloth at $11.50, which is a smoother and finer weave suitable for delicate work.

These fabrics are on display at Little River Craft Station, Little River, Canterbury, NZ
