Welcome to another episode of Telecast Thursday!
Today I'm stepping away from quilting to bring you a tutorial on dyeing quilt batting. Okay, it is sort of something to do with quilting, but you don't usually get your hands wet when you're doing that! Although I do wear gloves when I'm quilting...
Back to today's subject. I have lots of small batting bits that are left over after quilting my quilts and I keep them stuffed in a big plastic bag. They're too small to be of much use (unless I use them for dusters and who wants to dust?!), but too big to throw away. What can be done with these leftover batting pieces? Dye them! Yes, quilt batting dyes easily and makes great appliqués. Check out the video to see how easy it is to do this.
You can watch the video below or on my Youtube channel.
Let me know if you've ever tried dyeing batting and what your results were. If you haven't yet tried this, I hop you will and send me photos of your results. See, your microwave isn't really meant for cooking!
