Dyed diapers loosing/gaining value
Hi, there was a thread the other day about dyed prefolds and if they were worth more or less. The end consensus was if they were done correctly they were worth more because of the time and $ spent doing them, and they are cuter!
Well, my questions is, is that same thing true for dyed fitteds? I have some natural fireflys I want to dye and was wondering if people will ever want to buy them after? The soaker is sewn in so that will have to be dyed as well.

Let me know what you think, I will be using Dylon dye and doing them solid colors. It must be ok to have on the inside if people dye prefolds with it, right??

I think they would gain value too. I"ll be watching this since I want my next project to be dyeing snuggle-up fitteds

I would think if they were well-done they would gain value, too. I've seen dyed and tie-dyed dipes like Dream-EZE that are normally only available in white sell for a decent amount because a lot of people (like me) are scared to dye them themselves.

If they are done right they would go up in value imo. I tie dyed a terry fitted i have and I LOVE it! It is way cuter than its plain white cousins! I used Rainbow Rock...

Re: Dyed diapers loosing/gaining value
I am sure they would go up in value, or at the very least remian the same but certainly not lose value. I want natural fitteds because I plan to use them for a few babies and want to keep them gender neutral, but I plan to dye my prefolds. I say go for it!
