Gift Wrap with Tea Dyed wrapping

Want to take your tea obsession one step further this holiday season?  I’m wrapping all my gifts this year in custom made, tea dyed fabrics!  This wrapping is great for books, puzzles, clothes and more.  You can also custom create your own gift – tea-dye shirts, socks, napkins, placemats…. the possibilities are endless. I toodled over to Joann’s Fabrics and found some bleached and unbleached muslin fabric.  I did a test run yesterday of 4 teas/herbs and the results for 3 of them were better than I imagined. I found some great information on how-to for dying fabrics at DIY Natural and at WikiHow.   First I ground all the teas & herbs I was using into smaller pieces (list below); then I measured 2 tsp of the ground […]
