My Tea Dyed Top.

Added Aug 17, 2012

Somewhere In Sun...






I made this self drafted tunic toile project and then tie dyed it with some of my hubby’s red tea. The effect was great. It gave the tunic a tint of lovely pink. So I decorated it up with a bit of pink lace I had and pink sequin lace.

Just a fun crafty project.

It looks a little crushed…but thats the effect.:) lol.

Material Notes

pink lace

      I soaked it for half a day. Then cold washed it. So it turned out like that. I just like experimenting with different stuff. I dont think i’ d be wearing this particular top as it was an experiment. Thanks Mary…I dont think my hubby was happy using up his box of tea…lol.
