Just messing around with some cottons which are much harder to get to take the dye then the silks and wools.
You'd think I'd get a punch of color like you are starting to see bleed thru below after I folded the left front over the right,but after steaming/boiling..
the result is much different then you'd expect.
The marigolds and eucalyptus leaves pretty much stay turn to color...
but I really lost the wonderful pomegranate red.
But then when you look really close you are seeing some turquoise and purples. I actually like how the back side looks more then the front. And if you look even closer you can see how the lace trim is picking up the colors as well, above.
