More hand-dyed fabrics

Here are more fabrics I've worked on at my night class:
The hot wax technique is not something I found really worked for me, so what I've been working on is dyeing a base colour, and then painting a design or pattern on top; this technique allows me more control over the piece. There are only two classes left, so I'm going to cut out some pattern pieces for specific things I want to make, and design the fabric based on the shape of the item.

My week-end was spent figuring out my table and making sure I had the right display fixtures. And working on a sign. And printing out business cards and promo postcards. And labeling inventory. And there's still lots to do.

New Labels

My labels have arrived!
It's too bad most of my merchandise has already been made for my first craft show, but I'll start adding these to new items. I'm very pleased with how the turned out, but for the next batch I may increase the font of the second and third lines.

This week I was able to make some Blythe clothes with the fabrics I've made in my night class. Margot is modeling one of the ponchos (she needs it with that short skirt of hers!). I bought the wee pom-poms off of a supplier on Etsy.

Here are some other Blythe clothes
I've made with the hand-dyed fabrics:

This week-end I painted a bunch of table-top accessories and display items ready for my upcoming craft show. More info on that later.
