Hand Dyed Diapers!

I recently had an order to hand dye 100% organic cotton diapers. How cute these would be on baby behinds but no....they are intended as gifts to be used as lovely dish towels!  Isn't that a great idea?


The first set were dyed medium lime green. I dyed some solid and some mottled.


Here are the others- Bright Orange, solid and mottled, and Bright Raspberry- also solid and some mottled.

Look at the beautiful and simple wrapping job she did as well-


Great gift idea, don't you agree?
