Food as Dyes

posted on: Wednesday, October 17, 2012

I'm 37 weeks pregnant and finally getting things ready for our baby. When Enzo was a baby the cool thing was the sling. When Maria was a baby it was the all natural rubber pacifier. Now the hot new thing is the Aden + Anis swaddling blankets. Supposedly they're like magic. My sister-in-law sent me one, which she tie-dyed and made it super cute. I want more. I also want to dye them but don't have any dyes to work with.

Have you ever used natural dyes like berries and tumeric? I recently saw a tutorial on Sweet Peach on how to use natural dyes on 100% cotton and I'm intrigued. Does it fade after a couple washes? If anyone has experience with using food as dyes can you give me some suggestions? Thanks much!
