A Little More From My Kitchen Sink ...

Hello my dear friends,

I really enjoyed my recent kitchen sink dying sessions and that is why I just had to do a little more of it last week.

 This time I wanted to see if I could dye some of my uncolored and unbleached sari silk ribbon and so I tried it out and ...

  ... it worked!

I also used unbleached cotton batting instead of bleached and both took different to the dye. The unbleached batting didn't take the color as well as the bleached one did and the silk took much longer to dye than either of the batting but in the end, I think that I got a great result.

I couldn't wait to use some of both so I was very busy and now my newest little needle book is done and that is what I am sharing with all of you today. My new Hydrangea needle books of a another color.

My "Blue Hydrangea" needle book.

I just love this shade of blue!

My newest creation is now listed for sale in my Etsy shop if anyone might be interested.

I have a little more of the sari silk ribbon and batting in this lovely shade of blue leftover so I might just make another little needle book with it. I also have something else on my worktable right now but I will share that in a different post in the future. All I will tell you that it has something to do with my little dandelions. So ... do visit me sometime again and see what I have been up too.

Thank you for stopping by here today and I hope you enjoy your short stay.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. Karen that blue is so pretty. The hydrangea on the book is adorable. That will probably sell quickly.
    Happy New Week.

  2. Karen, This one looks as if it were antique. A very well preserved antique. I really like the blue colors that you ended up with. You seem to have such a knack with your "sink".

  3. Did you use It dye or just the blue ribbon?

    1. Hi there,
      I dyed the silk ribbon with fabric dye.
      Hope this helps.

    1. Hi Unknown,
      I used Tulip fabric dye from the UK and mixed the shade of blue.
