I seem to have joined the guild of Weavers, Spinners, and Dyers recently, and I was intrigued when they were running a Christmas competition called "dye-a-bundle", so of course I had to enter!
I received a square of cloth in which was wrapped up many different short lengths of yarn plus a "mystery colour" of Dylon. (Which, as I expected from its greenish hue, turned out to be green.)
After the first pot, I dyed up a second pot in a lighter shade - more fabric, more yarn.
When all had dried I made this:
He's got a woven ridgeback of all the different yarns I'd gotten, which I then sewed and steeked. (Probably not the right term for weaving, but oh well.) This bit took far longer than designing the stuffie himself, he practically threw himself together.
Hooray for me, though, when the voting day came I'd tied for second place out of all the lovely entries. Hurray!
Does anyone want a lizard stuffie? Probably not suitable for children under 3!
