Dyeing Fabric from Wild Onion - A bit daunting, but great results.
Tea-Dyeing Fabric for an Aged Look - This tutorial features some lovely embroidery on the dyed fabric.
Dyeing Fabric from SewMamaSew - A bit daunting like the Wild Onion tutorial, but again- gorgeous results.
Snow Dyeing - Unless you live somewhere very cold, this won't be useful yet... But it's a cool idea!
