Since I try and only use recycled/reused materials etc some of my samples are odd colours or materials. I thought that I would have an attempt at making a homemade dye from beetroot, the results were ok but I definitely want to experiment more.
Organic Beetroot and Salt
Chopped stalks and all and bring to the boil.
Soak the cloth in hot salt water before submerging in the dye. I left it to soak for 12hrs.
