Clover Sprouts in the Hemp Bag and Noodles’ Eco-Suits …

Of course came out fabu-loso 😉

Here are the Red Clover seeds soaking (yes, those are shoelaces for string! It is hemp, though 😛 ):

Okay, so after a good 8- to 12-hour soak, it’s now it’s hang time.

Then…Day 1:

This is how I rinse: I add the bag to a bowl of water and swoosh and shake and submerge so ALL the sprouts get a nice soaking. I do this instead of running tons of water over them — WASTING!! This works fantastic and saves me some angst! I really, really, really — did I mention, “really”? — despise wasting water.

Day 2 — Gorgeous! I think Red Clover seeds are the most beautiful, don’t you?

Here is the bag of sprouts, done, on Day 6 (Now I know I can use a bit more seeds next time since this is not too full): Note how dry the bag is…

Obviously this type of sprout also excels in hemp bags!

Now, I read that some seeds, like red clover sprouts release quite a bit of their pigment on to their host. So I expected my bag to stain, and it didn’t disappoint :). I think it looks nice, actually; I love antiques and antiquey things, especially fabrics! So this looks like a “well-seasoned” sprout bag ;^).

This is just another small-ish hemp sprout bag I made; I want a separate one for alfalfa sprouts:

I also made some re-usable tea bags like I had purchased previously (some are really cheapy; some are good-quality) with the scraps of fabric leftover from making the hemp sprouter bags 😀 :

And this is a large-ish filter made from the hemp jersey for volume tasks, such as for seed mylks or juices, etc.

This particular fabric is so gorgeous I almost hate to use it! The picture at Near Sea Naturals and these photos, too, don’t do it justice; if I didn’t know better, I would say it was a blend with silk! It has that type of drape, feel, and look.

I got the ring from the large re-usable cotton tea nets I bought which wore out; no use throwing away those good rings! They fit nicely. 😀

Now for another Noodles layout ;^)

Here he is in the bird suit made from the cool, cotton-like fabric, “Natural Hemp-Organic Cotton Muslin” that I used to make the sprout bags:

And here is a suit in the drapey, very light — I hate to even use the word, “jersey”! — Hemp-Organic Cotton jersey fabric:

Here is a nicer closeup of the fabric:

But, of course, nudie is always better ;^)

I still have to make him one in the other gorgeous jersey, the FeatherweighNatural Hemp-Organic Cotton Jersey.

I just love the naturalness of these fabrics! Knowing there is nothing synthetic or poisonous is a very good thing, indeed. :^)
