I have been saving onion skins and avocado pits and skins and marigolds for some time. Yesterday I decided to get out the pots and get busy.
This is the onion skin dye. I had two big plastic bags of the skins and it made a pretty dark orangie color. I'll leave the fabric in over night. I have some wool that I will add in a couple of hours.
Avocado skins made a deeper pinkish dye than the pits. I cooked them separately and like the two shades. The pit color is the next picture.
You can see the lighter color.
Marigolds make a very pretty light yellow.
It is always a surprise to see what color comes. Always different.
A reminder of the two special classes coming up soon.
Color Theory Class is Saturday Aug. 4. There are a few spots left so let me know if you'd like to join us. 10-2----$10.00
Friday August 17 is the Petit Fours class. Pinterest has lots of these type blocks called "inchies". These are pictures of the ones I have been working on. It will be fun sharing small bits of lace and fabric to build with. Come and join the fun. 10-2---$10.00
