Several of you were asking about over-dyeing, so here's a great example.
Jean sent me some cute pink fabric with green frogs. It looked nice with the rest of my prints, but when I over-dyed it with just a bit of light gray, it was absolutely perfect. The gray toned it down just a touch and since the other fabrics were more muted, it slid into the slot I needed perfectly. I still needed the bright, but just a shade different. If you don't have them side by side, you'd never know one was dyed.
