Please post any experiments, with good or bad results, here.
Today I will be space dyeing a background cloth which is for a school children's project I'm involved with. They have drawn around their hands onto Bondaweb - about 35 children between 5 and 8 - and I have transferred the shapes onto fabric which have each been fused to a felt backing, appliqued with a satin stitch edging and cut out. Their school logo is a tree of leaves and the idea is to make a big wall-hanging substituting the leaves with their hands. I raided my green stash and they were able to choose their own fabrics.
Each hand will eventually have the child's name embroidered on it but I need to have the background finished so the hands can be placed and the names angled to be able to be read easily.

It was at this point I realised that the piece of fabric which Phil and I had dyed years ago, wasn't big enough. Hence having to dye a bigger piece. Wish me luck with the dyeing - I am NOT a dyer!
