How do you dye 10 yards of fabric at once

with a bunch of kids .....I will be doing the Annual Artrageous event this coming saturday and I came up with this wild and crazy idea to have kids help me create art quilts....well you need special fabric for that so...We will be creating a maze of fabric inside a tent...that the kids will walk through with a variety of painting and dying the end of the day we will unveil what we end up with.

Some of the kids will be blindfolded so they can experience the surprise of what they are doing...some will only use their mouths,,, or one hand or stand on one leg ....etc you get the idea.   Spray bottles with koolaid for dye (its safe)  acrylic paints for brushes ...markers ....what ever we can find to "DYE" fabric.  any thoughts anyone might have that we can use please email or post ...thanks

I will cut some fun sections out to frame and sell at the auction the following night ...and the rest will be used to create a Art quilt for the following year to be auctioned. 

The Project is called SPONTANEOUS CREATION ART QUILT   I know the kids are going to have a blast..

will post photos when it is all done...

Having been a artist literally all my life, I love color and dimension.I learned to sew at age 10 , by age 13 started a stuffed animal business, which grew into a collectable Teddy Bear Business for 15 + years. I opened my own bead store specializing in Spontaneous Creation classes and love to teach everyone they could be creative and open the door to their imagination.I recently returned to one of my favorite art forms taking photographs my father gave me my first camera when I was a child and I have loved photography ever since. I took professional family portraits and weddings for the first 5 years living in the Outer Banks, I am now shooting Family portraits again and sharing my love of the Outer Banks through my blogs. Be creative, walk in faith and never give up....It all happens in God's time
