Wow, I am trying #12 this week. I don't think it looks too hard.

I really like #4 too, but it seems like a lot more work - with 3 little kids, I don't think we'll have the patience this to try the natural dyes. Maybe in a couple years we'll give it a whirl!

wow #11 and #12 are really cool but they look pretty difficult to do. I'll probably stick to dipping in food coloring :P
