Bleaching and Sewing

Malka of Stitch In Dye does amazing things with bleaching and overdyeing and I thought I would finally have a go at bleaching some fabric. I bit splotchy in parts, but it seemed to work.A little bit of sewing.

On this. Yes Chris you can definitely have the title of Husband of the Year.
Happy Fathers Day to you. xxx

The bleach effect is beautiful and so is the new sewing machine. :)

New sewing machine, how lucky! Bleaching looks great, especially sewn next to the unbleached. Love to try it but I think I'm just a bit too scared at the moment.

I really like the look of the bleached next to the un. It's amazing the changes in colour that you get. Can't wait to see the finished product.
Enjoy that fancy machine! I'm jealous.
