    …and other neat stuff. There is a lot of information on this site, but what was of interest to me was the detailed section on making your own dye out of natural ingredients that you have around the house or can forage or grow. The link is
    http://www.pioneerthinking.com/crafts/crafts-basics/naturaldyes.html

    There is also a good color chart that lists the colors for most of the ingredients talked about. A few indicate that a color is permanent, but I suspect most plant fade pretty quickly. The prettier colors are further down the page, but there is plenty of greens, browns, blacks, and beige to choose from for those who like to blend in with their surroundings. 🙂

    The rest of the site covers other subjects like candle making, soap making, and quilting – but this is the first place I’ve found that had a good section on making dye.
