Cut Out and Keep Interview

This week I had the good fortune of being interviewed by Cut Out and Keep, the incredibly clever brainchild of Cat Morley.  Interviews always stump me a bit, I don't like talking about myself so much, rather, doing projects is more my scene but here it is in case anyone's interested in hearing about my fashion sense here it is.  There is also a project I contributed as part of my interview.  For that DIY click here.

Color Block Sweater

This is an angora hair sweater I scored at the good ol' $.99 store.  I removed some crazy-giant shoulder pads that gave away the 80s of it all.  It needed a little something to jazz up the plain milky whiteness of it all, so I decided to dip it in a little wash of color to see what would happen.

1.  Wet the fabric you plan to dye with cold water.  I used Tulip One Step Dyes in orange for this project.

Squeezing the fabric helps to really saturate the dye into the fibers.

Make sure not to get dye on the rest of the sweater by leaving it outside the bucket.

Hang on a tree to dry, making sure not to let the dye touch the rest of the sweater.
