So I have a couple questions about this 1" cotton cluny lace. It looks so old fashioned when dyed in soft colors (which I love) and can be bright and bold and new looking when the colors are changed. This base is white so I will do a patriotic pack with red, white and blue. That's a given. Then I want to do so softer colors and even the primitive set. Probable cinnamon, rust, a dark plum, a faded blue, antique caramel......I still have to decide how many colors I am going to do. What colors do you like best for finishing? Basic colors to keep in stock. And MOST OF ALL I wanted to ask if you think 1 yard of each color is enough? On a wider trim like that I usually put one yard because the package can get pretty bulky but I can do two yards of each color. I was going to do three trims per package instead of singles. I have to decide if the three pack will be the same trim in three different colors or three styles of the same color. Talk to me......
I am thinking of adding a 3/8" lace as I have sold it before in neutral shades and it might be perfect for very small items.
I will do two styles in the wider cluny lace. It is actually 1-1/8" and I have been told it is preshrunk which is nice. Then when it hits the hot water in the dye bath it will not shrink. My order should be delivered later this week and after I have some dyed I will show them to you.
Thanks for stopping by.......
