that by adding pieces to a tea dye bath prior to sewing gave me beautiful results. It is a simple process that makes a design richer and appears older with an aged antique look.
This is an Alternative Bohemian Tea Dyed Bridal 2-pc Outfit.
This is an antiqued tea length Wedding Dress.
Designs are made entirely of recycled items and vintage/antique trims. All pieces have been tea dyed prior to construction. Hand Embroidered details. Available in my shop. http://www.mexisoul.etsy.com
A Passion to Create......
Tea Dye Bath Instructions..Add approximately 10-20 tea bags to a large pot of water.
Bring to a boil.
Water will have a rich tea color.
Turn water off and add the select pieces to dye.
I like to remove the tea bags.
Leave pieces in dye anywhere from 2 hours -4 hours.
Remove and rinse with water.
Lay flat to dry or place in dryer.
Tips…If a piece has a prior stain it may take on a different color.
Different fabrics/trims dye differently depending on content.
