Mixed Media Explorations, Week One, Step Two

Okay, I'm feeling better about my Mixed Media Explorations! I've washed the Solvy off of them, and they worked as promised. The grid structure held up on both pieces. The free-motion stitching didn't fair so well, mostly because a cat got to it while it was drying. I tried to lay them flat to dry, but got impatient, so I dried all three pieces with an iron. For some reason, the colors look a little faded. Maybe because I ironed them dry?

I would suspect they're lighter from the rinse , it probably washed a bit of color out. If I remember correctly most natural fabrics aren't colorfast , but I'm far from an expert on fabric lol.
