Once apron a time...

Before the days of Rit Dye, artisans used plants and flowers to color their textiles.
I used turmeric for the one with the fringe and a combination of marigold and golden rod for the one with the circles.
The marigolds were frozen after harvest and then steeped in hot water and left for several days. round plastic eye shadow tops were kept in place by clips from Staple.
