Project Run & Play Week 3 - Earth Day

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

This week's challenge at  PR & P was to "Design an earth friendly children's outfit".
I've been wanting to try dyeing fabric for awhile, and took this opportunity to do it.  To keep with the earth friendly theme, I dyed my linen fabric using natural foods: turmeric and coffee.  Then, I made Anja a little colour-blocked sundress with the newly dyed fabric!

I am very passionate about using/creating eco-friendly products (such as my cleaning supplies) so I am very excited to have found a way to dye fabric in a natural way.

Here is a tutorial on how to make the inverted pleats that I used for this little dress.

  1. Very cool - I've often wondered about how coffee would work. Thanks for sharing!
