W R A P°° it knot it pop it stop it 🎤 bandanas are the long time favorites♡ warm your ears in winter and color your look up in summer! Nowadays I even see them around bags for an extra touch, and I love to wrap them around my oversized dresses to accentuate and give it some flair 😘 How do you wear your bandana?
🙈 so this is the color I got from beet root dye after a few light heatings and 18 hours in the dye pot 😕 it's a nice color, will be a warm beige when dries I think but definitely not what I planned for 😐 I think 12 hours would have been better 😉 I will try again later🙋 any dyers out there like to share their experiences about beet root dyeing? Would like to hear from you ❤
jag söker någon som har möjlighet till screentryck i götet eller varberg. jag kan såklart betala en symbolisk summa/alternativt fika/mat + material kostnad. jag behöver trycka upp små tyglappar till mina kläder, för snart händer det nya oerhört roliga saker!
trycken ska bara vara svarta. jag vet hur en trycker så kan lätt göra det själv behöver bara utrustning för att kunna göra det.
så snälla hjälp en sömmerska som behöver hjälp. (slut på efterlysning)
tack o puss ❤
Jennifer @byquilly sent me this photo of her shoes. She has very cleverly used my eco print ribbon instead of laces. Super cute idea 😃 Jennifer is a very talented clothes designer and maker. The details in her work are exquisite. Go take a peek 💝
My fibre friend Megan’s dreamy loom room. I gifted her these little marigold dyed flags last year and I’d say they look pretty darn cute up there. Also she’s coming to visit, and I just can’t wait ☺️ #fibrepals

Spent last weekend in beautiful Iowa for a slow textiles retreat. We foraged local plants, learned about natural plant dying, how to beautifully mend worn clothing and so much more all on a gorgeous and welcoming farm in Iowa. Thank you so much @sashaduerr @katrinarodabaugh and @three_pines_farm for all your kindness, hospitality, and words of wisdom. What a magical weekend with an amazing group of people. More pics to follow! This is a dye vat from foraged coreopsis flowers.
My lack of faith was apparently warranted.
The indigo vat was pretty much dead. Almost no dye actually made it onto my fabric. So when I took my stitching out and washed it, this is all that was left of my beautiful octopus stitching. There's no way I could have known the vat was this dead since it was my first time using indigo, and I dipped it multiple times for a lengthy time each. Seeing as I don't have my own indigo vat, I have no idea what my alternative would have been.
Between my stolen scarf and this, I'm thinking that fabric dyeing is a cursed subject for me :( #art#dye#naturaldye#plantdye#fibreart#ecodye#shibori#indigo#indigodye

Soft merino wool, hand dyed with mushrooms. . Look at these colors!! In Sweden we visited a lovely lady who told us everything about finding the right mushrooms in the Swedish forests and then dyeing wool with them. There is nothing but water and mushrooms needed. Pure magic, pure nature...look at those colors! I am in love..
Some of you know how much I LOVE mail. Some of you know how much I LOVE plant dyes. Some of you know how much I LOVE PINK! @naturallydyedgoods didn’t know any of these things and somehow managed to send me the sweetest, prettiest little gift. Thank you so much! Can’t wait to meet you and play in hand dying together 🌸

The glory of Goldenrod unfolds when the air begins to cool
Providing that last bright sweet nectar for the creatures to enjoy
Surrounded by bees, I sunk deeper into the patch of yellow flowers
Gently weeping over the willingness to share with a stranger
And the soft nature of these fuzzy flying bugs
Given such a mean reputation, but in reality a gentle one considering it's power
Not a single sting as I gathered,
Attempting to avoid disturbing the sweet bees feast,
Choosing wisely each top, leaving much more to remain.
It looks as if a human never came through with their needy hands
The land remains viable and my arms full of medicine
To finally be part of the cycle brings true satisfaction and peace
These hues and incredible properties will be enjoyed by many
Time to spend precious time with this magnificent plant ally 🌿💗
Our luxury hand dyed charmeuse sleep masks are making their first grand appearance internationally ✨
@headandhands_ is launching this weekend. They specialize in handmade goods for home and self care. They also offer a number of conscious craft workshops. We are so happy to be a part of their vision!
This was a happy accident! These lovely blues are the result of making elderberry jelly this August - the muslin was a beautiful magenta after I’d strained the jelly and then as I rinsed it under the tap it magically changed colour in front of my eyes! It reminded me of colour changing felt tips I had in the 90s! (Anyone?!) .
Anyway I thought it could make a beautiful background for an embroidery piece - I love how natural dyes give so much texture and delicate depth of colours to the fabric. What do you think?
The next weekend I picked looooads more elderberries and now have a freezer full! I can’t wait to experiment some more! .
Also if anyone is interested ... I googled why the colour change and it’s to do with the pH of the water 👩🏻🔬 Our water is pretty alkaline so it turned blue! Lucky me! Gotta love those blues 💦💙
Fall is for the children of the forests. The smell, the crunch of leaves, the stillness that the dropping temperature brings. My forest home is lined with Ferns that are the skeletal support for thousands of spiders and the shade to keep the dampness in the soil. I knew I loved these sweet creatures deeply but it wasn’t until recently being in the south that I realized how much comfort they bring me. So I pay homage to them and bring them everywhere with me. Let them grow and glow on these organic cotton and indigo dresses. 💙💙💙
One of my goals for #slowfashionoctober was trying to dye with indigo for the first time - with emphasis on trying. It was kind of a mixed experience - it was really magical seeing the color change, but I think the whole process was a little stressful with running back and forth. And the color didn't get even and my yarn has dark spots. But I still love it, and I'm telling myself that it's part of the handmade charm! Even though it was a mixed experience I still reached my goal, and that's worth a lot. 💙💙💙 #naturaldye#plantdye#indigo#naturalindigo#sustainablefashion#slowmade#slowliving#slowfashion
