Vibrant Plant Dye by Sasha Duerr

There always is a better way to dye clothing, not with toxic chemicals, but natural dyes from plants, fruits, and many others! The book, Vibrant Plant Dye Projects for Your Home and Wardrobe by Sasha Duerr really explains how to create your own dyes from natural. It uses different colors you'd find naturally in fruits and teas, plus other plants that are known for their very lovely hues. 

The book first will explain everything about Natural dyes and what the book is all about. Next, you'll learn how to start, what you need, and the instructions to get you creating some beautiful colors!
I love that it's easy to understand and to actually do! Not only can you enjoy homemade colored fabrics like napkins, rugs, shirts, and pants, but you can also be a beginner and still end up successfully achieving your own colored cloth. The colors are so vibrant and can be changed by how long you leave the cloth into the color, also by the fabric used. Many fabrics dye better and accept the color more, while others might not become as bright. However, this book covers all that information and details to achieve these wonderful colors.

Finally, for the first time learning about this type of art, I am so interested in creating my own clothing of color! It's an excellent guide and something anyone could try and succeed at! Excellent book!
