Tie dye with Onion skin

Project Description

What are you most proud of? That the dye took like I thought it would. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you have quite a bit of onion skins. Also you might want to mordant the shirts beforehand with alum. The alum is supposed to make the colour brighter/more intense.

What you will need

  • White shirts and onion skin dye

Q&A with Ilailea

GranJan asked:
Love the use of natural dyes. Can you suggest any plants for a dye garden?
Ilailea answered:
I am just getting started so I have just been dabbling with stuff that is already growing around. I have read that you can grow indigo which is harder to get. There is lots of information on the internet though
