Free on Friday: For Those Unraveling at the Seams

Rainbow Rich and Rainbow Medium fabrics
It's been an exciting week here at the Artfabrik dye shop (also known as the dungeon).

Now that my ordeal is over,  I have a huge stack of fabric in the Rainbow Rich and Rainbow Medium colorways.  These will work nicely as kits for my up coming classes and patterns.
Fabric Ravelings. These could by yours!
This dye marathon also yielded a bonus for you, my lovely readers. Each yard of fabric unravels just a little bit in the washing process. As a result blobs of thread ravelings litter my dye studio.

Would you like some ravels in this gorgeous Green/Yellow combo? If you leave a comment on the blog today, I'll randomly pick a lucky winner and ship off a quart size bag of ravels just for you.
Thread Woman wearing her cool threads.
And maybe someday you too can build your own Thread Woman to live in your dungeon.

I would love your ravelings. Mine are so boring. I save them but the colours are dull and lifeless. I hate being the first to post but that's how anxious I am

ME! Pick ME! Those ravelings are great! I took a class with Judith Baker Montano and she showed us how to use them with feather stitches to create bushes and trees!

Pam said...

so funny! what a great way to get rid of what otherwise just might end up in the trash. I usually donate my ravelings to the birds in my yard to make their nests. I'm sure they would love to add your colors to their decor.

I'm thinking the ravelings would be great for embellishing. I have the perfect tote for them!!

Wow, she's quite the woman....gotta love the Koolaid blue/green hair with purple lipstick!!

That is so funny, love her. I do my own dying too, so I have lots of my own ravels, though I tend to throw mine away, lol. I am still washing wools and fabrics that the cats got on, so once I get that mess cleaned up, I can get back to dying what I have.

I will be happy to take it!

The birds already have the best thing in the world.....they can fly! Please allow one of us (me, please) to fly with your beautiful ravelings. Sonia

I used to get a lot of ravelings when I dyed with muslin, but I switched to Test Fabric PDF, and now I get very little. I wish I had saved all of the ones I threw away, so I'd love to get your green ravelings, so good to use in little landscapes.

Oh, yes! I love using ravelings in my little quilts. They are so much fun to use and your colors are great. Thanks for a chance to win.
