Dyeing with Turmeric

I had about two yards of unbleached cotton just waiting to be used. I boiled a pot of water, added vinegar(for the mordant), then added the turmeric. 
I folded the fabric using the shibori method. 
The results!

This was after having it in the dye pot for less than five minutes. If you are getting into natural dyeing and want the gratification of instant results, go with turmeric.

I have some ideas on how I want to use the fabric. I recently used it as a table cover for the recent calligraphy class at Gather and Craft
