dyeing fabric is one of the small scale wonders of the world. fabric is quite easily transformed from a light or white fabric into a bright colored thing.
fabric can be dyed on small scale by heating a dye bath on the stove…or small scale dip dyes with indigo dye or other type of dye. there is even a dye where you spray color and set it in the dryer. usually these small scale items are a couple small pieces of fabric.
its useful because you can add a little bit of contrast and show off your handiwork. hand dyes often imbue fabrics with a touch of rusticity…a bit of the old world. or it can add the future work of the small scale green worker. either way, kind of interesting.
