Dyeing the Blues

At Summer School 2007 my chosen course was "Dyeing the Blues" learning indigo dyeing with Viviene Prideaux, using a zinc lime vat. We made lots of samples and some larger pieces. I made a soft jacket from one fabric and pieced together a lap quilt from the small samples, it's lightly padded and quilted with piped edges.

Knitted and lined sock slippers

These were knitted for my granddaughter, based on some she had seen in a shop, they are lined with some stretchy cotton jersey to make them extra warm, the foot part is based on Aunt Dana's sock pattern.
