Like last year it was fabulous, so much yarn, so many beautiful creations.
There was a young lady who proposed to dye yarn or a piece of fabric with plantes. I prepared some shibori fabric and we dyed it with onion skins (oh oh, the good old days, i did the same bout 40 years ago !).
I made a cushion with the fabric.
She also showed how to make a print of a leaf on fabric, so easy, so quick and with such a beautiful result.
You need a rubber hammer, a flat stone, some fabric to lay on the stone , a leaf that contents lots a tannin, like green oak , a piece of fabric on which you want the leafprint, a small basin with water and a teaspoon of iron sulfate(to fixe the print). Also a basin with water and soft soap.
First flat stone on the floor, that old fabric, leaf and above the leaf, the fabric for printing. .With the hammer you hammer on the fabric and after some minutes you see the print of the leaf. Then you put the fabric for some minutes in the iron sulfate to fix it, after that you wash it in a basin with soft soap and ready you are.
