Who knew dyeing fabric in cups could be so easy and so fun! I borrowed the lesson from Nina Marie Sayre , who has a fabulous blog. We had a blast and made some yummy pieces.

Here’s some of Cathy’s:

 We had so much fun, I am doing it again this month for those who couldn’t make it and wanted to.  So read below if you would like to dye your own gorgeous fabric.

It’s fun, fun, fun!!! Come to my studio in Raleigh and we will be dyeing small pieces of fabric in cups.  If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at dyeing, this will be a good intro.  I only have space for 8 at the most, so please email me if you want to come, roxane@roxanelessa.com

And don’t forget, I make custom commissions too! Read what my client Glenda had to say about her custom commission experience:

“Normally, I would be anxious about commissioning someone to do a work of art such as this. However, I felt a connection to you when Leigh showed me your work. It resonated with me and when I met you, you seemed almost a personification of your work. I immediately felt comfortable with you and knew that what you would create would be stunning. And it is!”
