If you’re going to be spending a ton of time in the kitchen between now and Thanksgiving, why not whip up some natural dyes while you’re at it?

You’ll definitely want to take a look what she’s discovered so far! (I don’t know about you, but I’m really intrigued by the black beans!)

Want to give it a try? Here are a few more natural dyeing resources to get you started:

    I’m so happy you found my little project- I’ll be posting an update next week to reveal the results of the natural dyeing. In the mean time I’ll share this with my Textiles teacher- she’ll be thrilled!
