What are your favorite colors? Are they pink, green, blue, purple, etc? This is a lesson to teach you an amazing natural dyes project with your favorite colors that we know you will love! This project is great for anyone including children! Experimenting with natural dyes on a gloomy day is a perfect way to add some color to your day! This is such a fun, environmentally friendly project that anyone can participate in! This project takes patience, but is also very affordable!
There are a number of plants and veggies that make natural dyes.
*It is important when working with natural dyes that experimentation is the key! So let your designer side come out!
What you need:
2 Large Pots
Second Step: Prepare Fabric
3. You need to create a fixative, which will help your fabric hold the dye.
Dyeing the Fabric
5. Drain the fruit/veggies in the drainer saving the liquid dye.
6. Place the fabric in the prepared dye and let it sit for a while. Make sure your dye is still simmering or warm. The longer you let it sit, the deeper the shade will be.
Hang to dry!
