Over the next 8 weeks we're going to share ideas, thoughts and tips on working with the shimmery, glimmery, pearlized, iridescent geometric fabric call Mirror Ball Dot.

Here are two examples of using Mirror Ball Dot with discharge and dyeing (or in this case spattered dye could be called painting).
Please note: Do avoid using chlorine bleach on any synthetic fiber; the damage is irreversible.
The discharged Mirror Ball Dot shown was done many years ago, was part of my stash, and I was looking for an excuse to finally use it. Ergo, I'd use it in this project!
So that was decided. The Cotton Couture I planned on tie-dyeing for a look and colors that were a modern interpretation of actual tapa cloth. I needed it to be done fast and efficiently with guaranteed professional results - and that is why I turned to my good friend Meriah of Meriah's Maui Dyes - my go-to gal for all things dyed. Of specific note to all you dyers out there: She said of tie-dyeing the Cotton Couture: It dyed better and nicer, with high saturation of dye and color, than some PFD cottons available in the market!
