Sew it All TV 13 Days of Giveaways – Day 12

Hello everyone! Thanks again for participating in our giveaways and for answering yesterday’s question about handbag hardware.

Yesterday’s winner of a great Amy Butler pillow pattern is Kathy Ohlson! Congratulations Kathy, please email with your mailing address to receive your prize.

Our friend Nicole Blum of Improv Sewing returned for season 6 to teach us how to combine knit and woven fabric into a cute and comfy tank made from a tank that you already own! Plus, embellish the tank with an adorable hand-embroidered Peter Pan collar for an extra detail.

Stitch a plain tank and embellish it with accessories, like a crazy cool hand-dyed scarf made from upcycled T-shirts. The Crafty Chica, Kathy Cano Murillo, shows you how in last season’s episode, To Dye For.

    I have been dyeing training pants and flour sack type dishtowels with great results. I wash with a ‘color grabber’ following dyeing.

  2. Karen Romeril says:

    I tie-died a sun dress in the mid-seventies. Since then I have died jeans to restore lost color to the denim. I’d like to try an ombré died skirt for next Summer.

    Love to dye silk scarfs. they dye very easy and look great for the styles of today.

    In an on-going tole painting class we painted on wood, but painted and dyed other things too, like tea-stained doilies we then framed. My favorite was tea staining a standard size bed pillow with tea in a spray bottle until you got that antique look. When it dried we acrylic-painted folk art things on it like angels, hearts, bird houses, etc. and added painted blanket stitches, sewed on charms, buttons, and pieces of the antiqued doilies- just whatever. The family fought over who would get the pillow first when we watched TV.

    Now, I can not seem to find the liquid product we added to the paint that keeps any fabric soft so you could paint on clothes and they would not get stiff. That way we could use our acrylic paints and not have to buy fabric paint – a real $$$ saver. Would love to do something like that again only using dyes and learn something new and fun!

    I have never dyed anything. Some day I would like to dye my own fabric.

    At an embellishment class, in Sister’s Oregon, we did some sample dye projects, would love to do a full size projects, thanks!

    did some dyeing when my daughters were in 4-H–tie dyeing was in style back then. It was fun but haven’t done any since.
