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

I got to photograph my wool collection on the stunning @allibalmer today and I must say she wears it beautifully 👌🏼 slip dress, pleated blouse and jacket made by yours truly, scroll through to see some of my faves from the shoot... thanks Alli 😘 #handmade #woolcollection #avocadodyed

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

I've never been into pink but then came 🥑 and now I can't seem to stop 💕🌸🐷🏄🏼‍♀️🎀💗 (have you seen my feed lately - så many pops of pink 😄) Mini skeins are the "gatsby dress" colorway. Yarn cake is dyed with 🥑.

Doing a photo transfer I learned on @creativebug from @ccerruti to create some visuals for my booth. So good! #maker #avocadodyed #diy #makeit #todolist

Trying something new. It didn't turn out exactly like I wanted and I need to sort out whether my pot was too small or if the soy mordant settled while it soaked. There are definite dark patches and light patches/streaks. I also dyed a linen cushion cover and that turned out perfectly.

🍁🍂 more avocado girls to come and next I'll be using blueberries for natural dyestuffs! 😍 #iloveyouspidersandbats #avocadodyed

I handdyed the fabrics of this patchwork wallobject with tea, avocado's and Moroccan pigments. There are hours and hours of Japanse inspired handstitches on it. Combined with Afghanistan nomadic jewelery and cowry shells, it falls perfectly in place at the beautifull @couleurlocaleconceptstore #atelierneeltjegeurtsen #handstitching #patchwork #handdyed #sustainable #eco #greenhome #homeinterior #homedecor #decoration #styling #japan #avocadodyed #object #wallhanging #artwork #homestyling #interieur #interieurstyling #handmade #artisanal #metdehand #atelier

These girls (and unicorn) are ALL still available in my shop! 😱💖go check them out! #iloveyouspidersandbats #avocadodyed #ilovethem

Hand dyed fabric using avocado skin and pits. The pits contain tannins so additional mordant is not necessary. Adding iron gives the mauve tones of the darker two. #handdyeing #handdyed #avocado-dye #avocadodyed

Pokeweed and avocado pit // These two skeins of yarn have been sitting on my desk for two weeks, and while I have enjoyed admiring them (and had a wonderful time dyeing them) I know now that I will never knit them. Oh pink! I love you and I don't! So they are in the shop for someone who unabashedly adores pink.

for the sweetest baby / a birthdate, birthstone, birthbloom for a tiny tot on my first attempt at hand dyed fabric (avocado pits, barely there pink 😳). will have to learn some patience with a dye pot... #handdyed #embroidery #handstitched #ruby #delphinium #avocadodyed #handmadehome #embroideryhoopart

This dusty pink hue is brought to you by the deliciousness of guacamole, the babely @ryahissa , the kind culinary team at Cantina, and the letter T (for tannin). It takes a village folks!

The results of my indigo vat (and last minute avocado dye pot) I only dipped twice, 5 minutes each and it gave this very pretty chambray like color. The pieces with the shibori inspired pattern are white cotton fabric from ikea. I made the pants in white premier linen from @wearethefabricstore and I made the skirt from white double gauze cotton I got from a discount fabric store in Paris and of course a white cotton bra because dye all the white things!

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:
1️⃣Simple dye bath, no alum mordant
2️⃣Dye bath with soy milk mordant + alum, 1 hour.
3️⃣Dye bath with soy milk mordant + alum, 2 hours.
Number 3 looks a bit muddy to me. I’m always self critical, a bad habit. A bird also 💩on it while it was hanging on the drying line 🙄. 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. 😉

Goodnight, lovers of linen. This vintage blush brought to you by 🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑.

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 🌏 #naturallydyed #avocadodye #avocadodyed #textiles #cotton #pillow #printed #handprinted #ink #whiteink #abstractdesign #pinkandwhite #homewares #homedecor #productdesign #reliefprint #blockprint #linocutprint

[after] perfect pink every time. Thank you, avocados 😄🥑🥑

🍃 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!😍 (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.🌿 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.🍂
Now i can finish my cup that is now cold and tired from being a prop.😅☕️ #thehappilyevercraftermom goes #vintage .
