More food dying

Here are the results of my onion skin fabric dying. The yellow onions produced a beautiful buttery yellow dye.

Here's more rust dyed fabric, which I LOVE. Even Max said, "Mom, you should do a shirt. It would look really good on you!" Yep, I need a white t-shirt to rust.

Then there is this gorgeous pink fabric. I love how the pattern is forming.
And the blending of the two.
This top piece is recycled raw silk. First, dyed with onion skins, then redyed.

I tried to create a pattern with the over-dying in the piece above.

And then there is some pieces in process. I'll unwind them tomorrow and see what happened with all my little kitchen ingredients! :)

Right now, I have a shirt "brewing"... I stamped on it with cut broccoli dipped in Soft Scrub with bleach. Anxious to see how it turns out! It's fun playing with all this stuff and experimenting!
