I bought "Rice Seasoning" to dye with..
OK. I went to the store and bought more "rice seasoning". It has turmeric in it not saffron. Turmeric also turns fabric yellow and is inexpensive. That is a little easier to deal with. I bought two packages. One to experiment with and one to replace the one I used the first time before my husband finds out I´ve been doing mad experiments with our dinners again. Today I don´t have time to experiment. I have to study very hard for my test this week in Business Development class. I also have to start planning, drawing and designing THREE garments for three different final projects. I am going to maybe try to convince the teachers to let me make one garment and use it to account for the two final projects in two diffenent classes. Then I would only have to make one really GOOD garment to cover the requirements of the two classes. It wouldn´t necessarily be less work, because I would have to make one really awesome dress rather than two sort of nice ones. Actually now that I think about it, maybe I am better off making two so-so garments. Maybe a cool t-shirt or blouse for stamping and dyes class and a cocktail dress for indumentary design. Then for Ergonomy I will probably make some work gloves for cleaning ladies. It all may sound easy but it is not because I have to do all kinds of drawings and planning and cost control. For Ergonomy I will have to find cleaning ladies who actually will use the gloves and then answer my survey questions. etc... The sewing is the easy part.
