Tie-Dying (mis)Adventure

Mixing the dye

Tying up the material to create circles

Failed attempt!

A delicious way to drown my sorrows

I had such a fun/educational/experimental time with Pip yesterday attempting to tie-dye! A snap wrong decision at IGA in the morning meant that my attempt was not so much tie-dye as just dyeing.. Oops. Next time round I'll be using rubber bands rather than jute string that doesn't hold up so well in a hot wash - bad move. At least I have a lovely new purple duvet cover!

I had a lot of fun shooting with my dear friend Mel yesterday.. she's been working/sewing towards doing the North Melbourne Thread Den market in two weeks time (that I'm always far too unorganised to apply for!) and these necklaces are new.. She also makes the sweetest little dresses, be sure to head along to the market, it's a special one to co-incide with fashion week - look out for candy, fake flowers and astroturf and you'll find Mel!

I'm just killing time at the airport on my way home for one of the saddest reasons there can possibly be to travel when getting sent this link momentarily brightened my evening. My lightbulb necklaces being featured on Michi Girl = pretty rad!

I feel like I've left part of my heart back in NZ..

It was ace to finally be able to check The Bread and Butter Letter out for myself when I was back in NZ over the weekend.. and it was even better than I'd imagined!
