How to Create a Fabric Dye Journal

Jun 28, 2022

I love experimenting with natural dyes to create my own unique stash of fabrics and yarns to use in my creative projects.

When I started with natural dyeing a few years ago, I quickly discovered that a Dye Journal is incredibly helpful for keeping track of my experiments so I can recreate the colors I love and build on past experiments. 

Creating a dye journal is super simple. All you need to get started is a blank sketchbook or notebook, a glue stick, and a pen. There are some key details I always make note of so I can recreate my color recipes.

 Let me show you inside my dye journal and walk you through the steps to creating and using your own.
