So I decided to make it into an alabaster lotus bud - a symbol of purity and the journey to enlightenment.
If I try this again I will soak the fabric first in soda ash. When I rinsed the fabric, a lot of the colt came out. I had some tea bags that left a nice pinkish reddish stain but it all came out. I'm
not a dyer but I think the soda ash makes dyes adhere to the fabric better. You should try this - just throw the fabric in a box or bin and every time you have a cuppa just throw the bag in - what have you got to lose?
I would love to see what you end up with :-)
Oh! And I want to wish my parents who are in their 80's and thankfully still going strong -
A happy 60th wedding anniversary!
60 years of marriage - and still in love - WOW!
