The article said to wrap grass clippings and some other vegetation in the fabric, roll it up into a packet, and then bury it in the compost. I of course had to take a picture so you could share the experience with me:
And here it is decently buried in the most recent additions:
I am a bit skeptical about how much of the color the fabric absorbs will permanently stay because the article said nothing about treating the fabric with anything or adding a mordant and usually vegetable dyes need something more to make them stick. But the fabric packets are supposed to cook for a month or two and then air cure for several days so we shall see. It has now been decomposing for over a week.
And if you are still with me after that stomach-turning picture, thanks for the company.
