Inking it up on Wearables

In visiting Southern California's El Camino Guild this week, a former student showed up wearing the cutest jacket with a pieced top/shoulders, and a white chenille torso. The fascinating thing was colored chenille areas. She had used the Tsukineko pigment ink I love to color her cotton chenille. Too cute! These pigment inks like natural fiber, so they are great for wearables and home decorating as well as quilting. Other ink friendly things are wood (e.g. you might stain buttons) and leather ( Now that would be fun on a belt!)

Okay... this quilter loves lime green. Works for me. So do I!
