Very early this morning, I was laying in bed but my brain was up and about. Perhaps you've had this happen to you...your body says, Just go back to sleep for a couple of hours! But your brain is starting to think about the next project...How many products in the kitchen could change the color of fabric? Wouldn't that make a great chapter in the book? You could call it Kitchen Kolor (okay, well maybe that's a bit much!).
Well, it just so happens that today was an unusually warm day for the end of September. The hot coffee I offered to my Doll Bee just wasn't selling. So this evening I thought, okay, here is an opportunity to throw a few pieces of fabric into the coffee to see what kinds of browns I can get. One bowl has just the coffee. The other the grounds with a bit of water.
I'm sure there are some of you out there who have much more experience with this. So here are a couple of questions...How long have you left fabric in coffee to dye it a nice brown? Also, how permanent is a coffee dyed piece of fabric? Would love to hear from those of you with a bit more experience in this department.
Tomorrow will be my 200th blog post. I'm going to offer up a little free gift. More about that tomorrow.
