Last summer, I was busy eco-printing leaves and other plant materials for my ever growing collection of repurposed linens and naturally dyed fabric. As always, I ended up with more fabric than I could possibly use in a season, so I began to think of other ways to combine these treasures.
I wanted a new tunic to take on my recent vacation, so I gathered leftover 100 percent cotton jersey scraps of fabric, along with eco-printed scraps of the same fabric. Since I did not have enough of the same fabric color to create a tunic, I used natural oatmeal for the main tunic and sunflower seed for the sleeves. The neck facing was fashioned out of eco-printed scraps of the same fabric, as was the hem of the tunic to make it a bit longer than I normally wear. Do you ever just make-do with what you already have in your fabric stash? Stay tuned for the finished tunic, which is now in the laundry pile!
