After successfully eco printing with rhododendron flowers on rice paper last week, let’s see what happens on silk!
Some vintage silk, steamed for 1.5 hours after layering with red onion skins and the leaves of a local unknown bushy plant, and wrapped around an old trampoline spring.
This fabric has a few holes in it because of its age, but I’m sure I can do something with it!
Eco dyed/printed cotton. More fabric for my new range of eco fashions!
Eco dyed upcycled cotton and lace jacket – some more of last Monday’s eco dyeing.
[Native cherry + copper dyepot; layered with eucalyptus leaves and ferns. Wrapped around an iron bar. Simmered for 5 hours (size – L).]
Eco dyed thrifted silk dress, to which I’ve added hand stitched appliqué circles using silk thread. I made the jacket from eco dyed cotton remnants; necklace made by Rosemary Harper.
