WHAT YOU’LL NEED
• Plant clippings
• 11x14-in. piece of white linen or cotton fabric
• Jacquard Solarfast fabric dye (dharmatrading.com)
• Glass from an old picture frame that’s slightly larger than the fabric
• Small bucket
• Jacquard Solarfast Wash (dharmatrading.com)
• Stitch Witchery
• Wooden dowel
• String or twine
Gather clippings from outside or indoor plants and press between heavy books. The flatter they are, the better.
Place the fabric on the cardboard, and decide on an arrangement for the plants.
Working indoors or in the shade, spread the dye on the fabric per package. Arrange clippings on top. Press into place with the glass.
Move the whole thing outside and expose to the sun according to dye instructions. (It usually takes 10 to 20 minutes.)
Remove the plants. Wash out the fabric in the bucket with water and Solarfast Wash to set the dye. Let dry, and iron if desired.
Hem the sides with Stitch Witchery (or on a sewing machine if you have one). Fold over the top inch and adhere, leaving a pocket. Insert a wooden dowel. Hang with string.
