Hi: Some time ago there was an article on fabric dying with shaving cream, I had saved the article but then my computer went down and now I no longer have the article, can anyone help? Also how does one get their fabric ready to cut up in strips or squares when quilting. I fold mine selavage to selvage and then fold again and cut but I'm told that your fabric is not lined up properly and your strips or whatever will not be straight. Any advise on this? Thanks hb39

I googled for "dying fabric with shaving cream" and came up with a bunch of different articles on how to do it. Give it a try.

Here's a site that gives info on how to cut strips:
