How to Dye Fabric with Coffee and Tea

I’ve always loved to dye textiles with tea and coffee. I think that it gives the fabric a  fantastic “aged” look that is hard to recreate with any other fabric dye. Head to your local grocery (or craft) store for the needed supplies:

-tea bags (or coffee)

-large pot

-tea kettle or stove top pot

Step one: Brew your teabags or coffee. Make sure the water is boiling hot, and allow your mixture to steep for at least fifteen minutes. **If using coffee, brew a larger batch just as you normally would. Be careful of the coffee boiling over!**
