In the spirit of fellowship many of us will be cooking up a storm next week. And that will mean kitchen scraps.
Why not put some of them to good use by experimenting with them to dye some thread. Although wools or silks usually work best, you could also try cotton threads,
You’ll get some lovely and surprising results.
Craft’s website has a post on this pointing to some other great resources.
You also should check out my Pinterest board on Dyeing Canvas & Threads. There you will find pictures and links to many more techniques to create your own unique threads.
Be sure, however, that the tools you use for dyeing are not also used for food. Buy and store them separately and not in your kitchen. While most dyes from food are safe, the other items used, such as mordants are not. And some, such as dye baths made from soaked pennies are actually poisonous.
Also always use rubber gloves and an apron when dyeing.
This could be the start of a delightful new hobby (not that you need one).
