Hi and happy Thanksgiving! I have been dying fabric using pomegranates.
|Fabric soaking in alum and cream of tarter mordant.|
|Pomegranate skins simmering.|
|Fabric cooking in pomegranate dye.|
|Cold bundled ecoprints|
|Hot bundled ecoprints|

This was an interesting first dying experience. There are some things I will do differently next time and hopefully get darker colors. If anyone has suggestions I would be thrilled to hear them.
I hope those of you celebrating Thanksgiving will have a happy and safe holiday. We are heading to Portland tomorrow to spend the time with the boys.
