Ugly Dried Avocado Peel + Silk, Scrim, Cotton and Linen


Equals PINK!

If I didn't see it  -
I wouldn't have believed it.

I've been reading about natural dyeing on quite a few blogs. The avocado dyeing seems to work for some - and not for others.
It worked for ME. So pretty! 
Now I have some vintage pink coolness to use in my workshop pieces.

Next:  Blackberry dye + voile, silk dupioni and cheese cloth.
Have I mentioned - Gizmo loves blackberries (and cheese!)
