Coffee Cloth

I had been reading and seeing things here and there about natural dyes and it has been on my mind, because it looks like so much fun. On Tuesday late afternoon our cold coffeepot still contained about a cup of coffee. So I poured it into a jar with some fabric for a few days to see what would happen. First I tied some little glass beads inside to see if I could get a few circles out of it - they came out alright. I think I like the striping most of all - like an aerial view of a creek bed or river.

  1. Great results with the coffee grinds... I might try that.
    Thank you for sharing. I am getting very keen on the dyeing myself.
