Fruit and Vegetable Fabric Dye

Dye Your Décor With Produce

In the new issue of Sweet Paul magazine, there's a feature on using fruits and vegetables to dye fabric naturally. I love the way the gradient on this farmers market bag turned out, and these napkins have me dreaming up colorful outdoor Summer dinner parties, but I also think the colors are so lovely on their own that they'd be just as fantastic as solids.

The issue provided a few more ideas for textiles to dye, including frame mats and pillowcases. Now I'm bursting with thoughts about what décor items around my home I could dye. Some of my favorites that I'd love to try are bed skirts, duvets, bolsters, and cocktail napkins. But I'm also thinking it could be interesting to dye a fabric with a subtle print like seersucker or with texture like quilting, embroidery, or ruffled trim. In case you're interested in getting your hands dirty with some produce, here's some décor that might be fun to try:
