Summer School Day Two

Last Tuesday was another hot day and we managed to again be outside. This time we used transfer or disperse dyes. These are dyes that are painted onto paper and then ironed onto polycotton or synthetic fabrics. The heat transfers the dyes and you end up with much brighter results than you get on the paper.
 We used the painted papers to make some book covers for some hand stitched books.
 The books below were made by Wendy. I love her skinny book with a pencil attached.
Day three tomorrow.
