I am a life-long knitter and crocheter, who loves to play with Color, texture, and design elements, combining traditional techniques with modern styles. When I am not busy homeschooling my 5 children, I enjoy learning new fiber-related skills. I love designing and working on projects for different publications, as well as publishing my own patterns on Ravelry and LoveCrafts.

Tie Dye Lagoon Pillows

Update your home décor with these trendy, tie-dyed pillows. Using only simple household supplies, you can dye your own unique pillows in an hour or less. Can you believe all these pillows were dyed using the same black food coloring? Differences in the final result were achieved through several tie-dying techniques and the use of two different yarns: 100% superwash wool and an acrylic/wool blend. Food dyes react with any animal fibers and having a blend of animal and man-made fibers can give a different color saturation or a slightly different hue to the finished product. Experiment with different dyes or yarn choices to create a unique, custom palette for your home.
