Plant Dyed Silks - New Etsy Shop

This was great fun!  We really got to experiment with what things would make pretty colors.  We had some surprises too.  We filled a great huge pot with water, and boiled our various plants, one at a time of course, then when they cooled, we put them in the bathtub, and Little Miss got to dip the new white silks into the color pots.  
What colors do you think they will be?  Well, after a bit of guessing, we were able to see the results.  We had a nice warm yellow, a pretty pink, a light tan.
Very exciting!  We will do this again soon, and experiment even more.
I did put one on my new etsy shop, Childhood Wonder.  Please stop by for a visit!
