A spot of dyeing

I confess, it's been a while since my last post. So much creating has happened, no less a little baby boy called Emrys being one of the most delightful of them. It's been a busy time with no time for blog posts, but this is something I hope to correct in 2013. Is it too early for resolutions. Christmas hasn't even passed yet.

Anyway, before the baby wakes here is a spot of dyeing that I did recently on a silk shirt that I chanced upon at the Melbourne Suitcase Rummage. I finally got those Silver Dollar Eucalyptus leaves to pay out their red orange tones and I love the result.

It's amazing what a few leaves, a handful of rusty nails, some string and a little water can do. I've run into two of my fellow Beautiful Silks India Flint workshop companions in the past month in Melbourne and on both occasions we have all by chance been wearing eco-dyed silk garments. Thank you India for your inspiration.


  1. Hello brenna! nice to see you on Found, Stitched Dyed on FB. Congratulation on your new human creation and will look forward to seeing more of your dyed things. beautiful shirt!

  2. Thanks Ginny,
    It's nice to be back, it's been a while. That FB group is so inspiring, I just thought, I'll post one of the tops I dyed to get me back blogging as I took a long break! It's hard to keep up but so great to see everyone's beautiful work.
