Messing Around

I wanted to try eco-dyeing with my red tulips from up on the mountain, plus I had some lovely dried rose petals from my Open House bouquet that I picked from our school gardens.
The results were spectacular.  I used a soy milk pre-mordant and a rusty nail to bundle the fabric with.  
And when I rinsed off the the remnants I didn't loose any color.
My students want to know what I will do with them?
No idea yet, perhaps a bed quilt with all my others at a way later date.
Like when I retire  :)
