A table set with cues from Mother Nature for Mother’s Days? Naturally.
My adoration for natural dyes started (here), deepened with last year’s flower tea bags, (here)and went all out bananas when we dyed natural Easter Egg dyes (here.) Hmmm, bananas, I haven’t tried that yet.
As we were dyeing Easter eggs, one thing led to another and before you knew it: we had fabric drying all over the kitchen. This yellow is the result of those experiments and I can’t wait to share it with you because it stood out as the easiest, most simple and heartiest natural color. It’s PERFECT for everyone from tiny toddler hands to adults! I hope, makes it perfect for you!
Come along with me, now, to learn how! Willowday Wishes (naturally!)
Natural fiber fabric or napkins (pre-washed), Turmeric, hot water, bowl and drying rack
Let’s get started:
– Measure hot water.
Note, if you are working with toddlers, you actually don’t need to have boiling water. I’ve experimented with warm, warm water that I could handle with my hands, and this worked just as well! I don’t understand the science behind the recommendation but, I have experimented repeatedly and want to share with you that it is OK with very warm tap water.
