Eco Dyeing Silk Scarves!

If I were to go back to school this fall, and the teachers had us write what we did on our summer vacation...this is what I would be writing about!

First you lay out all your plants and extra ingredients...spritz with vinegar and vodka!
Then you roll it up, burrito style, and tie tightly with twine, ready for the steamer...

Lindy and good friend rolling up the silk scarf.

After an hour's steam, time to unroll and unveil!

Petunias are very gratifying!
Copper pennies, rusty screws, coffee beans and grounds! On gauze.

We love playing with rusty junk! See the nut rust shape?

Do you like the rich rusty blotches? Red onion skins!
Do you want yellow? Turmeric!
