III. Dyeing

"Today is for the hippies, not hipsters." Thea, Bea and Shyn introduced us to dyeing fabric, all natural, from backyard leaves to achiote seeds. I was surprised that, though the most colorful in nature, flowers are weak for dyeing. It seems flowers are selfish that way.

The class were to make ombre bags. Our group made a Margherita bag: red sauce + white cheese + basil green = Italian flag. I'm curious now how to dye darker with berries, overcooked annattos, or maybe even blood (the peace-loving hippies won't like that).
