Experiment Revisit: DIY Dye

This weekend I decided to revisit my blog from one year ago - on March 8 of last year, I wrote about experimenting with natural dyes on a linen hat. 

Read the rest of the post  to learn how to dye your own projects using turmeric or curry powder! Mine wasn't a complete success, as you can see here. I think the combination of boiling/cooling the linen yarn caused it to shrink. Read up on the yarn you're working with if you dye your own yarn/projects. Actually, I recommend dying the yarn before making it into something, but you can follow my experimental method too!
