Bleaching

I was sorting through some of my stash looking for some fabric and I came across a lot of pieces of black Homespun (cotton) and got completely
sidetracked.
The next thing I knew I was in the laundry -bottle of bleach in one hand and vinegar in the other.
I was a girl on a mission- nothing could stop me now.
It is amazing what colours you can get when you bleach black fabric(or any other dark fabric) here are samples of 6 different dye lots of Homespun and I do have another sample somewhere hiding in the depths of that stash and it bleached back to a blue colour.Wish I could find it.
Now back to looking for that other fabric again.

Hi Doreen

These bleached fabrics look fantastic!!! I smiled at the thought of you getting distracted when looking through your fabric stash. And wanting to try a new technique.

That happens to me all the time!
