You got great results! Isn't it fun?!? I'm rinsing out my first batch tonight. We rarely get snow, so I had to jump on the chance while I have it!

Katherine these are so yummy!! It seems as I look at them, I can smell them... like Kool-aid. [I dyed some wool using Kool-aid].
You are going to hve some nice fabrics for our class... can't wait to see how you use them.

Katherine, these are great! Thanks for the link to my tutorial, much appreciated! Did you use sprinkles on any of these? I am sitting here actually hoping it will snow someday soon when I have a day off to play! Keep up the good work!

Oh my, such yummy luscious looking fabrics........ How am I going to keep the self discpline to finish my exhibition piece so I can play with snow dyeing here!!!

The marks are absolutely gorgeous!

Fortunately I know we have snow for at least another 1-2 months (sad but true).

I hope I the fabrics I get look as good as yours.

HI Katherine ,

this looks like so much fun I wish I had read up more on it before so when we got that rare snow we get here on the outerbanks I could have tried it.

WOuld it work with shaved ice???

too bad my mom knows nothing about any of this she has 36 inches of snow in her front yard in Nor Virginina right now

Great work
