A cup of tea?

Well it was a bowl of tea actually! I used some scraps of linen, lace and ribbon in the tea and look what happened!

I was amazed at the different shades I got! One tea bag (I used Yorkshire tea)  All the pieces went in together for the same amount of time then I washed them and then used fabric softener.

I wasn't expecting the lace (from a wedding dress) to go quite so 'orangey' and it was quite colourfast!
Well they are on the washing line, goodness knows what the neighbours think of my washing lately, there has been spray coloured doilies from beige to black, tea dyed rags, doilies and the odd baby dress! They must think I am pretty weird! Lol
Thanks for taking a look! See you soon!
