Dyeing Brushed Cotton

Last week I was gifted a complete roll of brushed cotton. The lady who gave it to me is hoping I can give her some ideas on using it, she has another four rolls at home.

Where to start? Hmmmm? I decided that I would add some colour.
I washed and prepared 2  x 3 metre lengths. One I scrunched, the other I twisted.
I then poured Dylon's Dark Green Dye over both pieces.
When used according to the direction this is the depth of colour you get.
This is the result you get when you delibrately choose to use the product against instruction. This will be a good background to add some more surface design. I'll post progress pictures as I go.
