I've been experimenting with .natural/ botanical dyeing, to dye fabrics for a very exciting new doll project (which I'm going to keep a secret for now!). 🌱
This significantly time-consuming process definitely made me take a step back and realize my life lately has been crazy hectic and emotionally draining...I'm so happy I discovered how nourishing and balanced natural dyeing feels, contributing to stress reduction and creating new connections with the world.
One of the most exciting parts is you're never sure what colour you'll end up with 😁 Here, tap water is quite hard with a lot of minerals, and there have been some thrilling changes in colours (e.g. lilac becoming dark green!).
So far I've experimented with pomegranate, avocado, red cabbage and beetroots, while I also tried my hand at eco-printing with flowers. I'm really excited about the yielded results! .
What about you? Have you tried natural dyeing? I'd love to hear your experiences 💜
Hopping and skipping over how this hankie pattern design came out! 🌼🤩🙌🏼 Now it’s off to our friends at @coffeesock to sew & stitch this bundle of saffron yellow cloth. #LetterpressPLAY#CoffeeSock
It’s time to blossom a batch of summertime bliss and print the pattern that will be featured in our hankie collection. 🌼👩🎨 #LetterpressPLAY
