It's a lot of fun to dye your own fabric. Of course, we all learned tie-dyeing as children, and it certainly has earned its place in society as THE dyeing technique for just about everyone. However, if you are like me, tie-dyed fabrics just don't hit the spot. There are, however, lots of other ways to add texture and create cool designs with fabric, using various household products. The image here shows a close up of a piece of fabric I dyed using this following technique. It has a lot of shade variation and picks up the texture from, thats right, you guessed, a rubber drawer liner!
