Feather panic...

... I've done quite well really, all the orders I've had for fascinators I've managed to find the right colour feathers with ease. Then my luck run out, and panic set in as I knew the time had come where I was going to have to dye my own. For some this may not have been a problem but knowing how bad I was at dying material at uni I was a tad nervous! I ordered the dye and the plain white feathers, they arrived, it was D-Day. Printed some instructions off the internet set out all materials needed. Heart beating wildly I began.... the verdict.... actually it was quite easy and the results were good. The only problem was the colour wasn't vibrant enough because I wasn't brave enough to put enough powder in, but one more dunk in some fresh dye and wa-la :) I was pretty pleased with the results, and here they are...


I didn't think to take any pictures of the process as I was faffing too much, but I'm about to dye my second lot so I will take some photos of that :)
