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!
