Snow dyeing

I have been reading about snow dyeing and since we have piles of snow all around I decided to give it a try.  I just used what I already had around and it wasn't the best dye for the projects.  Most of my results are quite faded looking.  I am ordering new dye to try to get better results.

This is what the snow dyeing process looks like.  You put down your fabric (or paper) on a rack and then pile on the snow.  Then you pour on the dye.  As the snow melts the fabric gets dyed.

Hey, I remember reading about that and maybe seeing a blog on it. Thanks for the pictures and the reminder. I am off to the garage to give it a try!
Your pieces are lovely.
