Almost Orange Kerchief

This is one of the pirate kerchieves you might have seen here. And the colour's the nearest hue to orange that was on stock. I put a small heart from the red fabric to compare.

I tried to dye it in yellow. I have colours that have to be added to water with salt and boiled with the fabric. I knew I couln't make real orange out of red. Dyeing to lighter colour's tricky. It ended up like this and I'm quite happy, as you can notice, it's yellower than the heart.

Not a "real orange" but now the red's more yellow than pink. It was just a try.. :-)
