Raspberry Pink

While making dessert with some frozen raspberries I had a great idea!  (Doesn't happen very often!)  Why not try dyeing some fabric with some frozen rasps!


I put some fabric in a bowl, added a few frozen rasps and covered them with boiling water.  Then I stirred and stirred for a few minutes. 


Took the fabric out of the bowl and ran it under the cold tap.  Very important note to self -  if doing this again, put the rasps in some muslin so that all the little seeds don't get caught up in the fabric!!!!!!!


Ta da!  Got a lovely pale pink colour in my Aida fabric - all ready for my next cross stitch project.


Had any brilliant ideas recently?

Love, Liz

If you chuck a fistful of table salt in the raspberry juice it helps to fix the colour

Such a pretty pink color! I had a good laugh about picking seeds out of the fabric....looking forward to seeing your pretty pink stitch. Mary@stitchingfriendsforever

What a lovely idea, Liz, although picking out the seeds can't have been much fun! xxx

Gosh what a brainwave that was! The pink fabric is lovely - I'm guessing you will need to set the colour somehow?

You sure did get a lovely shade of pink, Liz. What a great idea too. Never thought about the seeds...LOL! Looking forward to see what you stitch on that lovely fabric. Hope you are having a lovely weekend. RJ@stitchingfriendsforever
