Weaving from Natural Dyed Fabric


My woven tablemat with 'cecile brunner' rose on display.
 

I have a selection of fabrics from my natural dyeing experiments.  I really enjoy weaving so the above photos show what happened when I wove fabric strips from naturally dyed pieces I have on hand.
There's pink pieces from the bee balm in my garden, a spot of blue from pansy colouring, probably from ice flower dyeing as developed by India Flint.
I added a brown selvidge piece for contrast and interest. (Not dyed by me)
Also, there are one or two other pieces not part of my dyed stash.
This little piece sits on our dining table.  I love  the rustic appearance of it.
that appeals to me.

have fun,
 Joan
