natural dyes: onions, garlic, and rust

I was given a bag full of onion and garlic skins to play with.  Thank you Beth!

For starters, I made bundles by wrapping the skins in fabric around smashed cans, and boiled them in water with some vinegar:

I let them sit in a bowl for about 3 weeks until they were good and dry. (Usually I am not patient enough to let something sit that long, but I was out of town on vacation.)

Everything was very dry when I started unwrapping my little gifts

I'm very excited to play with my new fabric!
