Dip Dye. Is it just me or is it everywhere. You’ve probably all seen dip dyed hair, how about tops, shorts, jumpers and dresses. I love it. Problem is I don’t actually own anything that is dip dyed. However that will soon be changed.
You can buy items from the shop or you can make them yourself here’s how:
1. Wash and dry fabric to remove any finishes that resist dye. Fill plastic bin with hot water to a depth of at least 6 inches. Stir in dye, starting with a small amount and adding more as desired. Dip a sample strip of fabric or paper towel to test the color. If too dark, add water; if too light, add dye. Let solution settle, so there are no bubbles at the surface.
2. Determine where you want the top of the dyed band to be; use pins to mark that line on fabric. Holding your fabric as straight as possible, dip into dye solution to just below the pin line (make sure you don’t dip the pins; the fabric will wick the dye higher). Keep fabric in dye until it turns the desired color (it will dry slightly lighter). Rinse fabric in cold water to remove excess dye until the water runs clear. Hang to dry. If desired, wash item with synthrapol detergent. ( from Martha Stewart)
Who likes bunnies? I adore them. Rabbits wearing waistcoats, even better. Time obsessed white rabbits wearing waistcoats, totally awesomeness overload. I also like the song ‘ White Rabbit’ by Grace Slick, check it out, it’s pretty cool
‘One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small,
And the ones that mother gives you
Don’t do anything at all.’- White Rabbit, Grace Slick
