We dyed this cloth alongside a batch of white eggs for Easter. The eggs didn't work quite as I had planned but the cloth was quite nice. For the blueberry dye, we put some frozen blueberries in a bowl, covered them with hot water and let them steep. For the tea dyes, we just put tea bags in bowls and and let them sit in hot water too. We added a bit of white vinegar to each batch to help the color set and then left the cloth in until they were dyed to a color we liked. It is always nice when mistakes become something new and exciting, isn't it? It is a good thing to remember.
P.s. THIS is a good book on natural dyeing!
