One letter at a time: Make every drop of blue pea count

Dear friends,

Welcome to the one-letter-at-a-time series,

Thank you for staying with me.

Last week, I've posted: make every drop of dragon fruit count and the reason behind why I started this movement.

Blue pea/ butterfly pea is a very common colour food dye used in South East Asia. For this project, I would love to use something that is grown locally to reduce our carbon footprint.  It helps the local farmers/ vendors to sustain their business while having something fresh and home-grown on our table.
And I got these blue peas from my mum's garden, which she had been harvesting, sun-drying and storing them in a freezer, to prolong their shelf life.

In this project, I have used:
• leftover papers
• cotton threads
• cotton cords
• kapok cotton/silk cotton
• corn leaf
• casuarina seed

to experiment with my natural dye project.

Important to note when collaborating with nature: you will never know what you'll end up with (which is always a surprise for me). To make natural dye simple for everyone, water and time are the only key ingredients in this natural dye process.





















Write to me if you think this post has inspired you. Feel free to try this project or share this with your friends who you think might like to experiment on their own too.
