Happy Easter!

It's like opening a treasure chest when unwrapping these naturally dyed eggs. We laid botanicals of all sorts onto fabric squares, then wrapped the fabric around our eggs and secured the bundle with rubber bands. Simmering away in a pan filled with onion skins and water, the colors were transferred to the egg shells. To our surprise the gingham fabric we used bled onto the shells for an interesting and unexpected effect. Yet another happy accident!
