I worry a lot. I am faint-of-heart.
I imagine all sorts of craft-related accidents. Like cutting my hands with the rotary cutter. Or dangling my hair into the path of overlocker blades. Or searing my fingers whilst ironing bias binding.
Frankly, I don't do dangerous particularly well.
Which is why my attention was diverted from the promise of rich, intense and profoundly dark on the packaging of "Velvet Black". And how I came to hone-in on the warning.
Blah blah ... breathing difficulties ... blah blah blah ... serious skin and eye irritation ... blah blah blah ... allergic reaction ... blah blah blah.
Perhaps the restoration of my favourite skirt - and removal of an infuriating bleach mark - need not involve fabric dye at all.
Call it unconventional ... or even a little bit wrong ... (and correct me if I am mistaken) but I am yet to hear of a serious mishap involving a Sharpie marker.
