Hi, I haven't had problems, but we use natural dyes and denim (indigo) which is good for the environment. Sunlight generally breaks down all types of dye within a few months naturally so you can put them in your compost pile if you are concerned.
Cool, I will have to do that in my veggie garden.

Good job. Enjoyed reading this.
Hey TomV4, I believe it depends on the fabric. Some natural fabrics take longer than others. Cotton is normally within a few months to a year around here in the South. Silk and wool also work pretty well. I got the idea from a larger factory I worked for. They used their leftover scraps from the fabric they cut to grow a vegtable garden out back for employees. It helped a lot with the hard clay soil we have around where we live. Works on a smaller scale too for home growers.

bias and ribbons as neither fray
Yup, a friend gave them to me...they're really handy if you have a sewing class to teach as they keep the small spare parts like pins, needles, buttons, ribbon, and beads all seperate.
Yes, it's a great project for scrap fabric which makes it ideal for left-overs from larger work, classrooms, or sewing parties. I really enjoy fabric Japanese fabric manipulation, but find myself too impatient to sew an entire quilt of squares. Since you only have to do one square to look good...it's pretty satisfying because you don't have to spend months sewing to get something unique and cool at the end.
