On Monday I experimented with natural dyeing. I used avocado skins and pips, white onion skins, beetroot and turmeric. I was really surprised by the beetroot, it came out a weird shade of grey, I’m not sure where I went wrong. I might have had to cook the beetroot first. I’m not sure. However the rest of the colours are amazing! I love how the dyes are slightly inconsistent so you get a faint tie dye effect. I can’t wait to see these all sewn up!
I decided I wanted to experiment a bit more with natural dyeing so I purchased this book, it looks great and has so many helpful tutorials.
