As a general rule I don't custom dye for people. The time involved in getting the exact shade just isn't worth he time and effort. But when my friend, Pauline, from Furry Friends Factory asked if I could dye some fabric for her adorable kits I couldn't say no.
The fabric on the bottom is the original colour. The piece on the top is the sample I was trying to match. The fabric is cordaroy. It was soooo heavy to lift when laden with dye.My muscles got a good work out.
This is the fabric after dyeing. Not a bad match. It's actually a little greener than it appears. Once Pauline says 'OK", I'll do the second piece. Still not in a hurry to make a habit of custom dyeing though.
