I really have no idea what I’m doing but I’m experimenting with natural plants and dying white linen and pearl cotton.
I have added 1/2 a teaspoon of Alum (thanks to my friend who gave me some) to boiling water and I added the plant matter that I’ve been collecting over the weeks. They will sit in the sun for a week or so, then I can check the results.
I also wet a length of linen and laid dry gum leaves on it. I put another layer of wet paper towel on the top and that’s also drying in the sun.
The linen came from Ikea at $1.00 meter on sale. !!!! a really good bargain I think.
I used dry lavender flowers.
Daisy or something… just ahold weed actually. But I just needed to know.
They look wonderful sitting in the jars, whether on not I achieve anything… who knows, but I just did it to see.
