Colors of the Peace Rose

 

The Peace rose is one of my favorite flowers, and the colors inspired my dye batch by the same name. I've listed some of the thread on Etsy.

It's been about a year since I posted my free tatting pattern "Star Capella" so here's the link to the PDF pattern and the link to my YouTube video. The mirror reversed, aka left handed video is here.

While I was doing the Peace batch, I made a short video showing how I dye thread and posted it on my Facebook page and the smartphone app TikTok. I'm @marileerockley on TikTok, which is all short videos (less than 60 seconds) in vertical format. The still photos below show painting the dye on the thread, and the rinse bath after the dye has set. These are of the Peace batch I just made. So you can see that the dye colors are much darker when being applied than how they look on the finished dry thread.

Really beautiful thread. We used to have the peace rose in our garden when I was a child. Inspiring for sure.

I also love the peace rose. I did watch your video, and it was very interesting. However, I think I'll leave they dyeing to you!

Thank you!
My intention with making the thread dyeing video was just to give people a glimpse at the process I use.
