    Is this just for display? Also does washing remove the desgins, plus you said this could also be used to keep flowers fresh but won’t they get mashed up from the pounding?

    I am so in this project! I love that the end results looks like water colour and embroidery!

    I too am wondering about the “washability” of a design like this. I would love to do this on some onesies for my granddaughter.

    I have tried this, but nothing I do after making it and washing it keeps the colors on the fabric. Do you not wash it? You’d have to, right? Help, please. I love this.

    If using fabric does the fabric need to be treated with anything other that heat setting before washing?

    I waited two days after pounding and then ironed it on high. But decided, since it would be worn, to soak it in a bath of water with some vinegar and soap. I was hoping to set the color further, but the solution turned the red flower color to brown-beige! Embroidering over this change will give two dimensions and save my mistake.

    This is only for decor, and not meant to be functional, I believe. So it can’t be expected to be washed, just enjoyed as a beautiful reminder of your garden. Maybe a decorate a napkin, then put it in a frame.
