Blackberries & Flying Pigs

I thought I'd try something new this weekend - I was looking in Borders and saw a book on natural dyes so I thought 'I can do that'. I experimented with a few different natural dyes, the first one is blackberries & beetroot leaves used to dye unbleached calico.

The experiment:

The result:

I don't think I'm quite ready to give up fabric made with synthetic dyes just yet... it's a nice colour though! Will show you what I make with it and the other pieces I dyed.

Hot off the sewing machine: sweet Pigs can Fly coinpurse, at Dawanda.
