A better green

A long time ago, i bought this organic cotton knit off etsy.  It was labeled “lettuce green” and from the pictures it looked like a lovely light shade.  

But it really looked more like a light mint green and i didn’t know what to do with it.  Besides use strips of it to tie up the raspberry stalks in our garden (either i was dealing with a fabric drought or i was just resentful that i bought something useless).

Then, this week i dyed it reseda green and it became a perfect shade of aqua.  So i used it to make another copycat linden sweatshirt and added faux quilting with help from this tutorial.
