DOLLAR STORE CHEESE CLOTH AND DYE


Every now and again I like to visit our local dollar store.  During my last visit I found some cheese cloth, I purchased several packages.
I really like the looks of dyed cheese cloth for that rustic feel.




I have had my dyes for sometime now, they last a long time.
I love this color.



This red is really not bright red but more like a barn red, know what I mean?





Then of course I got out my jar of instant coffee.
I have used a little of the cheese cloth on one of my altered bunnies, you can see that post here
I enjoy having items all ready to go, makes creating so much easier when I can just grab and go.

Thanks for stopping by.

Oh my goodness, your Willy Wonka Pea Doodle looks like my Angell. Awe, so cute. No, I don't think we can have too many nests. I pick them up when they have been blown from trees.My hubby finds abandoned ones and he brings them home to me. I have them everywhere. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Have a wonderful day! Love the dyed cheesecloth!
Hugs,Pat
