Aprons and rubber bands

Ankie gifted all the dyeing participants a "blank" apron + pockets to dye in any one of the methods we learned at the retreat. I chose rubber-band-strangle and jam jar dyeing as two techniques for a colourful result (Apron 1).  I also picked up some more felt balls at the Textile Art Festival in Brisbane last weekend. Thanks to Jenny Hunter from plumeart in New Zealand (where I first saw this great idea) made another bowl before retiring.
Today I'm off to the Art Gallery in Brisbane for  a real treat with Mum -  can't wait!
