Crafting: Mushrooms Embroidery

I designed this mushroom embroidery pattern. (Found here for FREE!) I decided to stitch it up with some of the 100% cotton yarn that I've been doing dye experiments on. The caps are dyed with coffee, the underside of the caps with tea, and the stems with white onion skins. 
 I think these mushrooms have a decidedly 1970's vibe to them but I'm 100% okay with that. My husband even said something nice about them unprompted. Usually I show him something I've made and say 'Now say it's pretty' which he does but he noted how nice the natural colors looked when used to embroidery something natural. 
 
I've listed my extra floss in my shop. I've made one package just for the colors used in the mushroom design and one variety pack for all the color I've dyed thus far.

  1. I would have guessed the darkest was the coffee. Crazy natural (unexpected) outcomes!
