New Books

I got these two books that I ordered from Amazon in the mail today. I follow Lisa Lam's blog U Handblog and I have been wanting her book ever since it came out. Look for even more bags showing up around here soon. The dyer's Dictionary is a recipe book for dyers who are too lazy to do hundreds of experiments (and keep track of the results).

Here is a sample page from the Dyer's Dictionary. This is basically what all the pages look like. It should be helpful when I want a particular color. Each color has a recipe for a yard and a quarter yard.

The Bag Making Bible is chock full of suggestions and includes several patterns. I love the one in the picture .

I also just bought the Fabric Dyer's Dictionary after getting it through my local library and finding it to be a great resource when it comes to picking out colors for dyeing.
