I am always interested in new craft processes. Some I just can`t figure out (crochet still eludes me!) but I will always try. I love the look of indigo dyed fabric. It reminds me of water and sky. It`s gorgeous. So of course the more I researched it, the more I wanted to try it. I was luck enough to find an indigo dye kit at an art shop in town so I dove right it!

It`s actually a really interesting process and A enjoyed watching the dye oxides from green to blue. It was rather tough to imagine how they would look when they were all tied up but I was pleasantly surprised with the results. I think I love them all! I`m imagining all the things I can dye! And I want to try other dyes. And other fibers. I definitely feel a new obsession coming on.


  1. yarn!! dye yarn!!! :D I love it and A looks so much older in these pics!!

    1. YES! I need to source out some good yarn for dying. I don`t have any neutral colors on hand. I`m growing marigold and calendula for dying yarn this summer.

  2. These turned out fantastic! I have natural dye fever after I attended a workshop. I've been meaning to try an indigo dye kit with the kids!
