Video: Naturally Dyed Table Runner


NaturallyDyedTableRunnerWithout further ado, here is the table runner video! I made a natural-dyed table runner using the spice turmeric for my Thanksgiving table this year. We did a video for Lifetime Moms showing how you can create your own. Please excuse Zan throwing the runner at my face… the truth of what really happens behind the scenes, just kidding! For all of you out of the country who can’t view the Lifetime videos, here’s a brief description of what I did: I bought 3 yards of natural linen and fringed the edge… no sewing required. I then boiled 10 cups water with 1/2 cup turmeric spice and added the fabric to the water. Wear gloves as this spice is hard to get off! Let the fabric boil and then simmer for about 1 hour until it’s a rich yellow color. Then rinse well and hang dry! This can be achieved using varied spices and even vegetables like beets!
