Shibori Indigo Dye Kit Review

Shibori Indigo Dye Kit Review - see what is inside this cheap kit, that dyes up to 15 shirts!

Sometimes ordering craft supplies blindly offline can turn out poorly (see my leather dye experiment here) but I really love this shibori indigo dye kit from Jacquard! I’ve used it several times over the past few years and had consistent results so I feel good about recommending it, after doing two separate projects this summer I decided to invite a few blogging friends for a whole week of shibori dye projects. I’m going to start off with a review of the kit since I love it so much, if you order one today you’ll be ready to experiment with indigo by the weekend!

How Sewing Fit In After Baby #2

During the month of July, we invite you to share your experiences of the physical and mental changes of pregnancy, childbirth and/or any other way a child comes to your life.” Be sure to click over and read what other bloggers had to share for the series – and if you’re pregnant or parenting  check out my other related posts:

Doll Stroller Makeover

A thrift shop doll stroller gets a makeover into a colorful, modern version! See how paint and fresh fabric can transform a dated toy.

I turned a boring toy into a colorful and modern doll stroller! Everyone who crafts and sews has a project they’ve started and stalled out on; when you’re a blogger it is even easier to get caught up in pattern tours and sponsored post deadlines. Recently, I’ve been intentionally turning things down and carving out time to finish some of the projects that I started or bought supplies for, and it feels great. I spray painted the frame for the diy doll stroller makeover, picked out a fabric, and then let the whole thing hang out under my cutting table for months. until now.
