The nice thing about geting ready for a show is trying new fabric and button combinations for kits.
A perfect combination - Barb's Moggy decoration and a piece of the new fabric.
It's easy finding two fabrics that work together, but finding the third can often be elusive. By chance these three fabrics were stacked near each other. The steel colour was just right but the white - well it was a bit too white. With no time to think about it I tea-dyed a piece. A much better match, don't you think?
When I first started out, I was always tea-dying something, fabrics, calico, felt, ribbons etc. and then I stopped. Perhaps my tastes changed, the fabrics I used were already antique looking enough or maybe I just got lazy! Looks like I'll be buying extra tea bags on the next visit to the supermarket.
