Two weeks and one day until Mabel's avocado themed birthday party. Just kidding on the theme, but quite a few of her gifts are being created with avocado stone dyed fibers. Her little #likesleevesforbabies vest is finished and just needs blocking. Yesterday I dyed some wool felt to make her birthday crown. I'd like to sew her a dress and a simple quilt as well, but may be a bit unrealistic with my goals! #avocadodyed #gshelleryarn #woolfelt

Draping the inside of this #friedlanderlawn with some #avocadodyed rayon...๐Ÿ˜‰. And no, this one is not a fishing shirt;) .

I meet @zolajewelryobjects ages ago when we shared a booth at @renegadecraft in NYC. Gabrielle was the first booth mate I ever had and she set the bar high being so sweet and lovely and made for good conversation over a long weekend. Love all these years later that these two got married and feel honored that Gabrielle asked me to make Brian and her father a necktie for the event. (Dyed with avocados of course.) Her wedding was stunning. Go stalk her feed for a slew of pics.

Adventures in vegetable dyeing, from left to right:
1๏ธโƒฃSimple dye bath, no alum mordant
2๏ธโƒฃDye bath with soy milk mordant + alum, 1 hour.
3๏ธโƒฃDye bath with soy milk mordant + alum, 2 hours.
Number 3 looks a bit muddy to me. Iโ€™m always self critical, a bad habit. A bird also ๐Ÿ’ฉon it while it was hanging on the drying line ๐Ÿ™„. The ammonia in the poop darkened the fabric in two perfectly placed dots. Ha! The interesting things one learns along the way. They've all since been washed gently on cold and are hanging again in the shade, waiting patiently for their turn under the sewing needle. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Goodnight, lovers of linen. This vintage blush brought to you by ๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿฅ‘.

Working on some ideas for hand printed pillows and other textile products.... here is the first one using natural dyes and block print. More to come soon - probably after I finish enjoying my travels ๐ŸŒ #naturallydyed #avocadodye #avocadodyed #textiles #cotton #pillow #printed #handprinted #ink #whiteink #abstractdesign #pinkandwhite #homewares #homedecor #productdesign #reliefprint #blockprint #linocutprint

๐Ÿƒ We had some leftover avocado pips ... really interesting to see how much more pink the soya mordant helped to extract ... added a little tin foil as no aluminium pot handy here .. pleased with the result #ALWnaturaldyeing --------------------------------------

I'm charmed by this yarn dyed with avocado pits!๐Ÿ˜ (see previous posts) That made me put away all my other projects so i can work with something that will serve as a souvenir of our avocado tree's first harvest.๐ŸŒฟ Im so excited excited to finish it but im more excited to share it with you! Ive been taking snaps as early as 6am this morning but waited for this snap that won't be needing filter/light adjustments coz i want to show its real color.๐Ÿ‚
Now i can finish my cup that is now cold and tired from being a prop.๐Ÿ˜…โ˜•๏ธ #thehappilyevercraftermom goes #vintage .

Adventures in natural dyeing. I purchased @rebeccadesnos E-book and got to work. Last week I started a soya and soaked all of these vintage linens. I was supposed to wait a week before dyeing but I'm impatient. My dye pot was avocado seeds. ๐Ÿฅ‘ Each one has turned out a different shade. I like the colors a lot but natural dying is hard work! Phew! I've got some onion skin dye ready for the next batch. Then it's on to scotch broom. #naturaldyeing #naturallydyed #naturallydyedlinen #dyedlinens #dyedlinen #rebeccadesnos #avocadodye #avocadodyeing #avocadodyed #avocadodyedfabric #maizehutton

More naturally dyed yarn. Two skeins on the left and a cake are dyed with avocado and two skeins on the right are dyed with alkanet....I do like the earthy purple that alkanet produced. I will be listing these in my shop later today.
