dyeing your jeans to be dark wash

DENIM UPCYCLE- I DYED MY STAINED JEANS WITH INDIGO

These Jeans have bad grass stains on the knees. I wanted to cover the stains so I decided to dip them into my indigo vat.  I dipped them multiple times and let them get semi dry in between.  I finally let them dry completely and washed them on hot and with an extra rinse.

SEMI CIRCLE TIE DYE SHIBORI TSHIRT UPCYCLE

One of my favorite things to do with dyeing is to upcycle clothes that are stained or a little worn.  Dyeing them brings new life and makes them look new.  I did a semi circle pattern for this one and it turned out really great.

JACQUARD CYANOTYPE KIT UNBOXING

I have been doing my research and my jacquard cyanotype kit is here. It's a chemical process that involves mixing two chemicals together and then letting them be exposed to the sun. This video goes over the instructions and my initial reaction to opening the product. I'm a big fan of jacquard products in general and I'm so excited to get to do some cyanotype.

Natural Dyeing with Yellow Onion Skins Tutorial

I decided to venture into the world of natural dyeing!  I am starting with natural onion dyeing because it's easy and only called for a salt solution.  Most dyeing calls for chemicals, but there are ways to get natural colors without the chemicals. Onion skin dyeing is one of the easiest types of natural dyeing. 
huipil hand embroidered pillow

HANDMADE PILLOWS FROM VINTAGE EMBROIDERED HUIPILES

I was gifted a number of vintage huipiles that were brought back from Guatemala.  They were incredibly beautiful and were covered with hand embroidery.  They were very old so some parts of them were very worn out.  So I decided to "upcycle" them and piece together the most fantastic parts of embroidery to make a pillow.
