Sunny Dyes Fabrics

Has anyone heard of or used Sunny Dyes Fabrics?

Their website says “At sunny*dyes, we hand paint each piece of fabric to order, using only nontoxic paints and natural materials. The fabric is laid out to “cure” for 24-48 hours, and is then pressed , heat set, and labeled. Our pictures are taken of the whole piece of fabric- hand painted fabric has a mottled look, and color combinations vary even within the same dye lot. Even though the fabrics are heat-set for colorfastness, dark or vibrant colors may not be fully colorfast.

So being hand-painted I’m not sure of the longevity of their colours or the colour-fastness if you need to wash you piece, but other fabrics I love are hand-painted too.

I love some of their fabrics.

Can’t you just see Mirabilia’s Stargazer on Carpe Noctem?

Or for those who do up those cute snowmen designs, wouldn’t Very Snowy Night be just perfect.  I know some fairy projects that would work for Faerie’s Leafy Glade and I would love to see what designers would dream up for Vampire Moon

    Wow! Thanks Mel! Never saw these before but, well, just wow. 🙂

    They are awfully pretty. But I’d worry about setting the first stitch in the right place so that the whole design ended up where I wanted it to be with respect to the fabric painting.

    Somewhere I have a pattern of 2 wolf pups practicing their first howls that would be so cute on Carpe Noctem! But no, I have not used their fabrics before.

    I found this by chance today while looking around the Mirabilia Yuku board. It uses one of the Sunny Dyes fabrics, but not one of those special painted ones. I thought you might like to take a look anyway.

    I’m still exploring (Mirabilia seems to be about my stitch level right now) so if I see anything else I’ll post a link to that too.

    Wow, that fabric is so cool! I’m afraid I’d buy it and then leave it in my stash waiting for the ‘perfect’ project.

    I have been told that you never wash your piece after you finish stitching on a hand-dyed fabric, specifically for the reason that the colours would run. I have stitched on one piece of hand-dyed and my UFO piece is on another one. I wash my hands before starting to stitch and try to make sure that I do nothing else but stitch or else I have to wash my hands again.

      Lana, I’m always careful with my stitching – but when you have WIPs that are over 10 years old and have moved house over a dozen times, well lets just say that there a times when life happens.

      Also whenever I may be percevied to be “recommending” a site, I always throw in a few general warnings such as colourfastness for those who may not be used to hand-dyed fabrics :).
