I just really needed to share this with you. This weekend i tried tea dye for the tulle and lace parts of my dress. Because I wanted it to match a creamy kind of fabric. But the outcome wasnt really what I wanted. The color needed to be more like a vanilla kind of cream color. And not more of a beige teint.
So… I searched in my kitchen… and found Saffran! So.. I thought to get more of a vamilla color, I need to add a yellow/orange tone.
So, I alot of saffran powder into a large pan. Hot water on it and than let it cool off. The water was al orange. I did the fabric in and waited for a few hours. (look and flush water out every now and than tot get the rigt tone.
When the fabric is really synthetic, like tulle, you need to let it in the pan for a long time and dont rinse off, just go outside and hit al the water out. A cotton or lace type of fabric sucks up all the color, zo you do need to rinse that out i guess. It matches perfectly and is really nice and bright creamy color. I dyed this way sparkle tulle and bridal tulle.
