Day of Loving Labor

This is a black cotton shrug that I have discharge dyed. 
I love how this turned out!

There are three different pieces that I have just set on the rusted stitched fabric from above
These are each done with similar fabrics to give some contrast and visual interest.

In this sample I have placed a rust dyed fabric remnant on top of a discharged 
black fabric. Then on top of the rust dying there is a printed fabric and another 
rust dyed circle. All stitched together with a rust colored embroidery floss. 
French knots in the center. While this took a bit of time to sew along with the 
other samples I am posting I have found this quite addictive and soothing to do. 
I can see why so many people do this.

 I have been doing alot of discharge dying today and hope to do more tomorrow.
