If you remember correctly, I purchased a skirt from Goodwill that had a fun and quirky pattern but was colored rather Easter-y for my tastes.
I attempted to dye it using tea, which I read could work because the fabric wasn't that dark.
Unfortunately, it didn't work. Perhaps the type of fabric was wrong for tea-dying, or the tea wasn't dark enough when I made the attempt. I have to say that the skirt did have a nice lemon scent afterward. You win some, you lose some.
I broke down and bought red dye, because it was the best available in my area. I might mix dyes and go brown, because I wanted a neutral to begin with. We'll see.
Has anyone been successful with tea-dying?
