I think I can feel a new hobby coming on.. 🤗
I bought the bright teal and orange fabrics because I wanted to make some dungarees, but then thought I might either end up looking like a) a children’s tv presenter or b) a prisoner from Orange is the New Black!
So I experimented dyeing the fabrics with tea - the orange to aim for a more rusty colour and the teal just to see what would happen. I thought they just ended up looking a bit grubby, so I treated myself to a book full of new ideas (and instructions how to actually do it properly) 😊

    This book looks awesome, I tried dying a shirt with turmeric but it looked awful! I have a couple packs of indigo I’m super excited to try out at some point. X
