珈琲染め coffee dying

必要性とか時間があると突然ハンドクラフト人間になる私。生地から何かを作るというよりはリメイクの方が多いけど、それでも自分の手で何かを作るって楽しいよね。
これは夏用ゆったりブラウスの珈琲染め。お店で、形も値段もばっちりなのに色が気に入らないなー、と悩んでたときにひらめいてやってみたの。もとの色は人工的な明るい水色。染めた後の色は・・・なんというのかな、パステルカーキ?薄い若草色?とにかくかなりいいニュアンスの色に変身にしてくれたのでよかったよかった☆
それからもうひとつ、これはまだデザインの段階なんだけど、こないだアップしたカゴバッグのリメイクも考え中。これは本当に手作り!生地選びから自分でやります!インナーバッグを作るついでにカゴ自体もレース系のモチーフアップリケとかリボンとかを使ってナチュラルでクラシックな感じ?にデコレートしたいの♪テーマは脱アジア風。これもブラウスぐらいうまくいきますように!

I can hardly say it's a hobby, but I do enjoy the odd handicraft activity when there's the neccesity and time. My handicrafts are often in the range of customising rather than actually creating something from a piece of fabric, but I still have great fun making something with your own ideas and hands.
This blouse wavering in the summer air is my latest work. When I saw this at the shop it was beautiful except for one thing; colour. It was a bargain price and I'd fell in love with the design too, but I couldn't agree with the chemical light blue colour. I could have just left the blouse there but somehow it occured to me that I could dye it with coffee, so that's exactly what I did. Don't you think it turned out lovely? Pastel khaki, or would you say dusky mint green? Anyway, a whole lot better than the original colour☆☆
And I actually have another project on the go, too, this time actually starting from choosing fabric! I want to decorate my sea grass basket I uploaded a while ago. This basket is wonderful as it is, but as I'm going to make an inner-bag (a bag with flaps that also function as a lid for the basket) I thought of decorating the whole bag to make it look more crafty and less Asian. At the moment I'm looking at antique lace motifs or cotton ribbons - nothing frilly or anything but natural and classic. Let's hope this project will go as well as the blouse!
