Oh! What trouble we can get into when we want to! I was on a mission to dip dye a dress, as it was going to cost to much to have it professionally done.So I called my friend Emily up, and said,
"Hey Girl! Let's go play in some dye!"
She took me to Manhattan Wardrobe Supply, and HELLO! What fabulous goodies they have there!
We bought the fancy pro dye, and also were intrigued by the liquid RIT dye... Bought both, came home, and started experimenting with RIT to see what would happen...
Here's all our tests strips. Yep! This was going to work!
Let's just go for it!
In it goes...
OOH! Looking good!
It's always darker when it's wet... so this took us a few dips to get it where we wanted it..., then I dabbed the dye up the bleed mark where I wanted it....
Then we had all that dye, so we thought, "hmmm,what else can we do?" I dug out some of my leftover carnival spoonflower fabric from the "When Crows Fly"quilt a week back...( you can see that post here)
Clamps, chopsticks, and dye... Very fun! Now what can I dye next? For today, I will stop while I am ahead!
