Wearing her doll’s hair; freshly dyed wool yarn (I used kool aid!), a photo by rebourne.etsy.com on Flickr.
Yesterday I dyed the yarn for Fern’s doll hair. I used Kool-Aid unsweetened powder and white vinegar. Of course, I walked out of the kitchen for a minute and my 5 year old opened the packet. She dyed her finger and my vintage dress from my childhood. Lovely! The yarn came out great, I’m excited to stitch it and get the dolls finished. I have to move onto the clothes, and I’ll need to alter the pattern I have to fit the larger arms I made.
Today brought a LOT of screaming from the baby. My ears hurt and my blood pressure is quite high. I’m trying to figure out how to relax……..?
