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.
Overall, 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!
