I picked the fern and used it to hammer this image into my fabric - it worked surprisingly well and color and pattern transferred nicely! The whole process is a bi laborious, as you need to lay the plant, face down, on your fabric, masking tape it on in layers and then hammer it down (I used a rubber maillot, providing a larger surface area with which to pond). I then turned the garment over, making taped side down now, and ran an iron over it to heat set the plant 'dye'!
