Trippy

Last time I showed you a bit about how I dyed these, so this time it seems only fair to show you how they came out!  Full disclosure, these are still a bit damp (and there is no way I care enough to iron them, that’s never going to happen), but this is a pretty accurate version of how they looked once they were washed (and washed and washed and washed) and dry.

DSC_0737 copyOverall, I’m super pleased.  It was a bit messy (my fingernails are still blue), and the process is a tiny bit smelly (best done outside).  But the kit made it pretty idiot proof (and dyed a lot of fabric), and the napkins are huge and stood up to the dye (and the power washer) perfectly.

If I were going to do it again, I’d probably get a little bag of thiox (or a commenter on the last post suggested rit dye remover, which is probably easier to find at the craft store) so I could revive the dyebath after it got all churned up from having things go in and out.  But even without that, it dyed 24 huge napkins and several shirts a lovely deep blue, and I totally feel like I got my money’s worth from the kit.

One more, just to show off, because I’m totally happy with it!
