The Creamsicle Bunting Bundle by Kristine Vejar, co-owner of AVFKW // featuring naturally-dyed fabric and twill tape
For this issue of Making, Kristine created a bunting project, full of spring colors and simple joy. Kristine says: Add a strand of peachy-orange bunting to your next outdoor soiree . . . and instantly feel happier. This project is great for all—a wonderful, straightforward project for those who want to play with fabric and color.
You can sew your bunting on a sewing machine or with a hand sewing needle. This is an easy project for a new sewist or to work on with your family. Then decorate your garden, patio, or favorite room with a little springtime flair!
We have created bundles using the same materials Kristine used in her project, approximately 13 different fabrics and twill tape, all naturally dyed in our Oakland studio with a variety of plants, including madder, weld, rhubarb, walnut, and cutch.

When working with fabric, thread, and fiber dyed with indigo, it is common and natural for the blue dye to rub off on one’s hands while sewing. This is called crocking. Although the goods have been washed, it takes pressured contact to release the extra indigo dye. Your handwork is part of the indigo dyeing process. The blue dye can be removed with hot water and soap. From working closely with indigo dyed materials through the making process, typically, the excess dye has been removed, and the crocking will cease.
Please note the fiber content of the material you are working with, and follow the applicable instructions:
Cotton or linen - Machine washable on cool cycle with pH neutral soap. Lay flat to dry.
Superwash Wool - Machine washable on cool cycle with pH neutral soap, though hand wash recommended. Lay flat to dry.
Wool and Wool blends - Handwash only in lukewarm water with pH neutral soap. Lay flat to dry.
