  1. Jan Borchardt says:

    I love to dye many things. Needed an orange bedspread. Was Yellow. Easy 2 packs of orange dye and a washing maching and magic. An orange bedspread.

  2. JoAnne Bell says:

    Many years ago I used procion dyes to dye 100 yards of greige goods (unfinished) white cotton. Made 8 graduated colors of each dye. It all was so beautiful — looked like velvet in quilts. Wish I still had the fabrics — almost none left. Astonishing how much dye you needed for yellow! Ami Simms had talked about doing this in a hilarious article in a quilt magazine, and then I took a class at the Big Tree Quilt Conference in Oswego.

  3. Nicole Lesley says:

    I haven’t dyed anything since our tied-dyed project in middle school. But with 2 nephews and 2 nieces, it would be a fun project with auntie.

  14. Rita McCart says:

    Yes I dyed my wedding dress blue so I could be Glenda the witch from wizard of OZ. :)

  15. jackie bethea says:

    tie dying with my girl scout troop–it was a big hit

  16. Brenda Thompson says:

    I used diluted bleach to create a black piece of cotton in a Batik looking piece. I used rubber bands to tie it off in different sections. Was quite pleased with the results. I have also done the same thing with regular dye. Awesome.

  17. Beverly Turner says:

    I dyed a pair of curtains once. Not a good result.

  18. Avis says:

    Every year about this time I go through last year’s fall-winter t-shirts, jeans and sweats to see what might benefit from a color refresh with dye in the washing machine. Since I like to machine embroider t-shirts and sweats with tone-on-tone poly thread, it’s easy to make the black, brown, olive, burgundy or navy items look almost like new for pennies per item.

  19. Mama Lusco says:

    I’ve dyed a few things, most recently a pair of jeans that had faded. Great prize pack!

  20. Marthie says:

  22. Deb says:

    I have dyed fabrics before. It’s a bit messy and I’ve been lucky to find the fabric I want or find materials in the color I’ve been wanting. That being said, if sometimes I couldn’t, then I’d be checking into dying something again!

  23. Carol K E says:

    My classmates and I shared a package of brown Rit Dye to change our white nursing support hose to brown so we could wear them to work as nursing assistants for the summer. I love using hand dyed fabric in projects, but have never tried it.

    I have dyed a lot of things. T shirts, cotton blouses, cotton and silk yard goods. I especially like to dye silk scarves. I add other embellishments to these projects such as puffy paints, hot fix crystals, raw edged pieces of other dyed fabric with beads or other objects encased in them. It is fun.
