  1. Hello there,
    I am a big fan of yours after repeat borrowing from my local Library. I’ve been inspired into numerous projects from your craft books and have been reloving items that I was ready to throw away.

    Can you help with advice on dying clothes?
    I have dyed a cotton shirt brown twice and each time after a couple of washes it fades again. Do you have any tips on making dye stick. I’m using standard Rit dye for cotton from Spotlight and then I use my toploader or the laundry sink.

    PS I reallly enjoyed “precious things” which I gobbled up a few weeks ago.


    • Dear Oonagh, apologies for the delay responding, I just found your message! The best thing for making dye stay put is salt and cold water – set the dye with salt and run much cold water through it before you dry, and always dry dyed clothes in the shade rather than the sun, as well as washing them in cold water in future washes. Hope this helps and thanks for the kind words about the book! XX
