Altered Couture Magazine


spice dyed

What experience do you have with natural dyes?

This bag was published in the Autumn 2017 edition of Altered Couture magazine.*

Altered Couture has a couple of challenges running this year that have caught my eye.  One of the challenges is to use natural dyes from foodstuffs to create a project.  Being a cook, I knew I’d have fun with this one.  As it turned out, I needed to make a bag that I can carry sheet music in for teaching my violin lessons.  Right now, I’m teaching at home, but that may not always be the case, and anyhow, I’m always toting piles of books.  I set out to create a bag that would hold all my stuff and yet fill the bill of the challenge.  I present my spice dyed music bag!
