I wanted to see if I could make a plaid pattern simply by using mechanical resist dye techniques. I tried two ways, one by tying and the other by stitching. I ended up with one that was fairly successful, and after a failure at sewing it into a shirt, I ended up with two-tone napkins. I'll walk you through the dye technique and touch on the sewing bit.Warning: Unnecessary Geek Out? I, for one, find the history of textiles fascinating. Which, by the way, is not a great pick up line. Generally speaking, I am not a big fan of tie dye. It's tacky and really shouldn't exist beyond the point of hanging on the summer camp clothes line. However, my mind was ever so slightly changed when I went to an exhibit at the Kent State University Fashion Museum a few months back . They had a resist dye exhibition with some really amazing bandhani garments made solely from mechanical resist techniques like binding, folding, twisting... basically tie dye. I was inspired. There was one piece that was highly detailed with people and animals and it told a story all from scrunching up fabric in the right way. While amazing, I had no idea how to even begin to work on something like that, other than spend 40 years as an artisan in India. However, there was another piece that used similar techniques, but from the?Caribbean?that was an almost perfect plaid pattern. This was still pretty distant from the type of tie dye I've seen before but was slightly more in reach. So I decided to give it a shot as a technical experiment. ??Materials:Fabric - best with non-synthetics, like cotton Dye Fabric Paint Bucket

Truthfully, this year they aren’t Thankful For cards, but grateful for cards. My friend Tori once said “Life is great, when you’re grateful” and no words could be truer. This year I have vowed to live each day being grateful, and what a wonderful year it has been!This year, Isla was born, I shared endless memories with Adalyn & Aniston due to the flexibility in my business, Chris & I managed a couple of children-less getaways, we visited my family, followed by spending precious time with Chris’. My career elevated to heights I only dreamed of a year or two ago, friendships have flourished and our home is nearing completion. I could go on & on about all of the things I am grateful for…maybe I should have made grateful for notebooks?Being a blogger, I am often prepared weeks in advance for any occasion. I consider it a trial run. I designed a Thanksgiving table setting with floral collaboration from my ever so sweet & talented friend Erin, of Erin Volante Floral, which was featured on BHG Style Spotters! {Yet another reason to be grateful this year!} These thankful for cards were featured and will again be present at our Thanksgiving table next week. This will be the 9th year of our thankful for tradition. I’ve been collecting the cards hoping that our girls and nephew will enjoy reading them years from now. I am also thankful for you! Thanks for stopping by to read about my adventures in entertaining, baking, diy’ing and more. And now, the much anticipated?2013 printable grateful for cards! These thankful for cards were a favorite last year and a few additional options here?if one fits your table better than another.What are you grateful for this year?JuliePhoto Credit:?Wheat Photo
