Loved this one..how long did you soak the leaves ?
It is a good idea to put some iron.on the leaves before ecoprint them?
These leaves were probably soaked for about 4 weeks. You only need to put iron on the leaves if you haven’t mordanted your fabric with iron, which I had for this video.
when in dye bath – do the bath cover the bundle or is it just steaming in dye bath?
Yes, you want to the dye bath to cover the bundle. The dye will only bind to the parts of the fabric it is directly touching, so the fabric needs to be submerged. If you were steaming the bundle, there would be no point using a dye bath because the colour can’t get to the fabric through steam. You are welcome to use the steaming method with plain water though, if you prefer that method. It will just give different results to cooking in a dye bath.
