    I love Le Creuset and these colorful naturally dyed napkins, thanks for sharing! I’m definitely inspired to make some napkins and dye them. I especially love the berries and purple cabbage ones!

    Love this post! So colourful, and brilliant ideas for dying fabrics…thank you! I’m a little confused about some of the dying processes though, so can you clarify that there are beets added to the strawberries (pink instructions), spinach to the blueberries/blackberries (blue instructions) and beets to the cabbage (purple instructions), or are these typos? Sorry, I feel like I missed something in those steps. Thanks again for the wonderful ideas!

    The best natural pink color comes from using avocado skins!! I always love that “purple” cabbage makes blue 😉 Love the napkin idea!! They came out gorgeous!

    Hi, don’t suppose you’ve got any washing instructions for using natural dyes? I’m wanting to die a linen dress I have but don’t want the dye to wash out within a few washes or discolour anything else x

    I think there are some copy & pasting errors in the blog post? Or perhaps I’m missing something? The word “beets” is stated halfway through multiple of the color instructions, but I suspect it is meant to repeat the fruits/veggies listed within the first step of the given color instructions instead of bringing in beets in addition 🤔 I’ll attempt to dye blue without beets and hope for the best! Otherwise, glad I found this to revive a dreary top! Thanks!

    I wpould also like the answer to this question. Also are the dyes heat stable. Or will they fade in time? In particular am interested in the yellow dye?
    Thanks! Great post.
