OOH IT IS LOVELY!!!! It has come out an off-white colour with a greeny tinge. The photograph doesn't really do it justice. Overall I am pleased with the experiment and am going to try again with different natural dyes and colours (mind is racing with possibilities!!). Should just mention that originally the fabric was a white 28ct evenweave.

Hand-Dyeing Fabric: Experiment One
So after a bit of internet research I have decided to have a go at hand-dyeing some fabric, since I love stitching on the hand-dyed fabrics I have bought from The Crafty Kitten. I found some instructions at this site but am attempting to use green tea bags in order to get a dirty, greeny colour. The following picture is of the fabric soaking in its bath of colour. I am very excited to see the results.
