Dyeing the fabric for the Traveller's Blanket
Some of you may be wondering why I used cotton threads to bind the circles - I am not looking for white areas such as you would get with synthetic threads that won't allow the dye the penetrate them, but rather for a paler circular zone that I can embroider around.
The middle and back of the Blanket are going to be made of lovely soft flannel. I decided to dye them Nutmeg - a rich orange-brown. The darker piece is the back, and the lighter shade is for the centre.
