fat baggies 3.1.19

Dirty Threads will be back come the first hot days of Spring...


I specialize in rescuing and re-purposing cloth with dyes and other surface design techniques. My preference is for cottons including vintage damask tablecloths, sheets, clothing, sackcloth - whatever I come across that can come back to life with a little color and attention. I make cloth to use in my own work but make more than I can ever use so I started this store for the leftovers. I add new sets all the time so, if you don't see something that moves you to art today, bookmark me and y'all come back soon and see what's new!
Got questions?


Each Fat Baggie is 25.00$ which includes postage inside the US.   (email me for elsewhere)
Fat Baggies are a fat bundle of luscious scraps. No seeds, stems or cheese! I stuff a 6x9 plastic envelope to bursting, slap postage on it and off it goes.   Stock your sewing basket with vintage, hand-dyed scraps from the Lawrenceville Frankenstein Dyeworx. 
Now picking from a huge hamper of shreds and scraps of hand dyed, cotton, broadcloth, linens - all natural fibers that have been through the Lawrenceville Frankenstein school of Color Transformation!  I've been pulling things from bins and shelves that go back to the beginnings of my dye experimentation. Treasures all.

Note--- Although MX dyes are forever and won't run, some the vintage fabrics are "tender" and not suitable for use in wash and wear things unless you are into shabby chic, in which case, you'll be thrilled at how these fabrics wear over time.  

ATTENTION international friends...sending this little packet of scraps overseas is hideously expensive!! I just paid 9.00 to get one over the border to Canada!  Email me first so I can get you a shipping cost!!

Looking forward to more shots ... I'm starting a new project that calls for brighter, more pastel colors than I normally use

I need/want purple. Are any of the above purple leaning and I am not able to appreciate it on my monitor?

I have no threads left, but purple will be on the to-do list once it warms up.
