Ok, here is a question for you expert fabric colorists out there: Can you use vegetable dyes to color fabrics? Here is the story. I made a dish with purple cabbage tonight for dinner, trying to increase the vegie intake. I was left with the most beautiful purple water. So, I stuck a scrap of fabric into it...the fabric turned a lovely lavender. I had read somewhere that vinegar would cause the dye to stay and not wash out, so dumped some vinegar into the pan. Wow! Bright pink now! PH, right? a PH difference? The fabric is in the dryer, then I will wash it to see if the "dye" stays. Any ideas? Or am I just nutty? :)
Have a most wonderful night!
