The tattered sheet and some other random white cotton off cuts have been in my Indigo pot.
The sun has been glorious and the fabric dyed and dried . I love it, once pressed it will be cut and hand stitched to add to my cotton cover.
The piece with the leaves on was gifted to me as it was a screen print tester and not perfect.
I love the randomness of it and it's mistakes add to its character.
I have quite a bit more of it that I will dye another day.
I tied some of the fabrics before immersing in the pot to give a little variation in colour.
You can just about see that the piece on the left is showing a little tie dye effect.
I am looking forward to working with it all.
This is an experiment in solar dyeing.
I immersed some white cotton in water that had a mordant added to it then added oak leaves and some flower seeds.
Hopefully the warmth of the sun will encourage some magic to happen.
