Colour me yellow
Z and I enjoyed a lovely afternoon in the backyard dying an old top (and a couple of Z's singlets) using tumeric. The top was headed for the op shop so I thought I'd make one last ditch attempt to redeem it.
I followed the process in The Handbook of Natural Plant Dyes a book I have talked about before and been itching to try. We had the tumeric in our spice cupboard... and I used cold water dying for the process so Z could be involved. It was a lot of fun and super simple. I'm now eager for my cabbage plants to sprout so I can try my hand with those gorgeous purple cabbage leaves too.
Here's to a bright summer.
