Last week I made pickled beetroot for the first time and I just couldn’t throw away that beautiful deep pink coloured liquid after I’d boiled the beetroot. So I bottled it to have a go at natural dying. Natural dying is something I’ve often wondered about but it wasn’t until I saw an episode of Garending Australia in June 2015 that I started thinking I could give it a go. So anyway I stored the ‘juice’ without any idea of how I would use it.
On Sunday I did a wardrobe clean out and culled a few t- shirts moving them along from my ‘wearable’ collection to my ‘repurpose-able’ collection. This morning I realised one of the white-turned-grey t-shirts would be perfect for a practice dye!
So here it is drying on the line. I’ve put the waste from the pickled beetroot to good use and have given a t-shirt new life before it makes it back into my repurpose-able collection. Alby (my six year old) said to me this morning “why do you keep doing these different things?” I replied “because it’s fun!”
