Dyeing Fabric

I love DIY projects! I remember when I was a teenager I bought a skirt that I loved but not the color. I bought Rit liquid dye and I got the color I wanted. This dye has been around forever and I wanted to try it with something new. I will show you how I transformed this crochet spread I recently bought for  $10 at a local thrift store.  Here is a before picture…

First, I purchased the color I wanted. Rit Pearl Grey.

Then, I followed directions on the bottle and filled a bucket of hot water and the dye. I mixed with a wooden spoon. *note* you will see purple but don’t freak out like I did.

Next,  let it sit there as directions state. ( up to 30 min.) Please excuse my dead grass.

Finally, rinse, wash and dry. ( I dried it on low settings in dryer)

I absolutely love how it came out! I love the color and it’s a nice change for the summer in my bedroom. I will definitely try something else.  Showing my own daughter how to do it was fun too! I hope this inspires you to do something too! Thanks for reading! Let me know what you think! Comment below.
