I didn't think it was the least bit possible. Using avocado skins to create a soft pink dye to use on laces, fabrics, etc. Yet I had seen on several blogs that people were doing just that. So I gave it a try a couple of days ago. Made delicious guacamole from scratch and then put the avocado skins in some water and brought it to a boil. After the water turned pink (yep!! it actually did) I turned off the heat and let the skins sit in the water overnight. After straining, this is the resulting color of the dye.
Am going to try this again next week using a little less water to see if the dye gets stronger and darker. Got more things to dye and am looking forward to it. Stay tuned!!
