This will only work on natural fibers like
cotton, linen and wool. Before you start
you need to prepare the fabric to be
2 cup of salt and 8 cups of
water to a boil and simmer your fabrics
for 1 hour. Rinse the fabric in cool water
and squeeze out excess water.
WHAT TO USE
blueberries - light purple
blackberries - dark plum
red beets - light pink
pomegranate juice - purple
saffron - golden yellow
turmeric - bright yellow
tea - ecru
coffee - light brown
grape juice - bluish purple
red cabbage - dusty pink
Place about 2 to 3 cups of berries/fruits
in a large pot and add 8 cups of water.
Bring to a boil and let it simmer for 15
minutes. Drain and use the liquid as
the dye. If you use juices, just heat up
the juice. Add your fabric and leave it
for as long as you want. The longer you
leave it, the stronger the color will be.
Remember that the color will be lighter
once you have rinsed the fabric and it
dries. Rinse it in hot water and hang it
Never wash any dyed fabrics with other
fabrics, as they will bleed.
