As promised here are the results of my natural tie dye project. One of the fun things about this was that I involved little miss Piper. She enjoyed watching the fabrics transform into colorful wonders. I will say the beets were the most disappointing. I thought they would be vibrant but the color came out super dull and almost a brown tone. Everywhere I read says to simmer your ingredients for about 1 hour, but I think the beets could have used less time. Next time I am going to try leaving the fabric overnight in the cooled liquid and see how that goes.
My favorite and most successful dyes were the Tumeric blends. I did one with tumeric and orange peels and then one with tumeric and onion skins. The results were vibrant and beautiful. The raspberries were nice, pretty pale, but a nice purple-pink color. Frozen blueberries were pale pink as well. I would LOVE to see your results if you give this a try!
