Hand dyed coffee stained linen

Wanted some stained fabric for Halloween projects and the last piece I ordered was $30 for a small cut so I thought..I can do this. So I took some instant coffee and 32 ct cream linen & messed around with it til i came up with this. Will work perfectly for what I want it for.  Don't recommend it for something like a sampler you want to have around hundreds of years from now because i am sure the acid from the coffee will eat thru eventually but for a Halloween ornament or quick picture it will do.
