What does Rit Dye and Mod Podge Have In Common?

Ellen Highsmith Silver....that is what Rit Dye and  Mod Podge have in common.  Remember when I posted about Floorquilts written by Ellen? If you answered no, click here :)

A Floorquilt Class....beautiful aren't they?

Ellen has come up with a new method for sealing her Floorquilts using Rit Dye and Mod Podge (You know Mod Podge Rocks don't ya? ).  Eddie from the Rit Dye Blog even posted photos and a tutorial here.  Check it out...it is perfect for a summer project and fast too.


I was recently telling someone about using Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth to make Floor Cloths/Quilts.  So if you didn't know you can use up some fun fabrics by making a Floorquilt....now you do :)  If you have some Rit Dye..check out the tutorial above...you could have a really spanky project to show off to your family and friends. 

Smiles,
Kelly

  3. It is fun to see that the technique she uses with the dye is very similar to a technique I learned for painting with acrylic paints.

  5. That is really neat, how she did that and something like that would be nice for my daughter. I wouldn't use the painted on backing though, wouldn't wash too well, easier to buy the rubber to put underneath.

  11. Looks like LOTS of fun! I'm in a dyeing bee - hmmm. This would work at a LONG retreat (with the overnight drying) and the drying between the various steps. How did this work in a workshop setting?

  12. Sounds very interesting. I'll definitely check it out. I am curious to learn more tips on using mod podge and this cloth. Tried it previously but still feel I have a lot to learn.
