Very interesting!  I love how simple/elegant the design looks against the natural color of the bag.  I, too, am interested in a tutorial on how to make/set the dye.

What is the consistency of the dye?  Would it work with large stamps (like the ones you use to decorate a wall?)  I have some big fish stamps that would look awesome with that dye (if it'll work).

Thanks for the idea!  I look forward to the tut for the dye... Smiley

Thanks!  The dye/paint is the consistency of finger paint.  That's why I hesitate to call it dye because it's thick enough to squeeze through a squeeze bottle.  I can't imagine why it wouldn't work with a stamp.  I think it might be fairly hard to get it thick enough to make a dark impresssion.

I'm typing up a tutorial, but like I said, I'll be going out of town tomorrow... I really should be doing laundry and packing right now  Wink

What I great idea, I love how many of these entries include eco-friendly construction methods!
Thanks!  I really wanted to hit home the whole eco-friendly idea, and an organic dye seemed the right thing to do.

Ooo, that sounds really fun!  I wonder if pomegranate juice would work, too.

Thanks!  That picture was taken three years ago, she looks a little older, but I still look the same.  That was Hubby's Valentine's Day present, I put it in a red leather frame with white stitching.  Sometimes I wish she was still that age, and then I remember the diapers and nursing!
