So the pre-pleated trim is dyed and dried. I tried the ombre effect, with every 3 minutes or so adding another yard of trim to the dye bath. Not sure if you can see the results very well right now, but hopefully when I put it continuously on to a skirt you can see the gradual color change.
I also threw in a piece of eyelet that I had laying around, thinking I could use it for sleeves or something if I used the trim on a dress rather than a skirt. However, it turned out much more purple. Not sure why, but it must have something to do with the different type of fabric.
I mentioned in my last post how I get to raid my mom's sewing room every time I go home. Sometimes she is just getting rid of stuff, but sometimes I look with something in mind. She doesn't sew much in the way of clothing anymore. She does a lot of quilting though. Because of that I get to pick out notions and fabric that she doesn't need anymore. Here is a sampling of what I came home with this time. Lot's of rick rack in fun colors. My favorites are the gingham bias tape and various colors of rick rack.
Here's just a fun picture of all of the rick rack that had prices on them. My how times have changed.
I also got a bag of woven trim. Not sure what I'm going to do with this yet.
