Every Inchie Monday -- Indigo

This week it's indigo on Every Inchie Monday, so for the card one I drew a picture of the plant whose fermented leaves gives us the dye, Indigofera Tinctoria. Now a mostly synthetic dye is used.
For the sewn one I used a piece of fabric from an old pair of jeans, which most of us would associate with indigo. I made a tiny pocket, as making a whole pair of jeans on an inch square would be somewhat challenging.
