Hmmmm, I think with the Dylon it won't take well. The fabric needs to be mostly natural fibers and I believe some one mentioned that it needed to be at least 60% natural. It might turn out like the MF insert....

Me too!!! I keep wondering what to dye next and thankfully my aunt came to the rescue with a sweatshirt she loves but her granddaughter spilled coffee all over - so that's next!

I am going to be trying out some Procion here soon because I want to make myself some bamboo prefolds and I'm worried about fade with Dylon and hot water. But I think Dylon will always be my first love. So easy, so pretty, so addicting....

I love the colors you used in the first one- so rich and yummy.
Thanks so much - that's exactly what I was thinking!! I know that washing on cold helps to maintain the color and so blankets, etc. should be fine. But I was wanting to make some prefolds but I know I wash the HECK out of my diapers on hot so.... time to learn some Procion! Hehe.

But I'm not through with Dylon yet!
