White?! Dye?

I don't like white diapers and have seen some on here dye thier diapers.
I LOVE tie died and just color.
How would I go about dieing our stash? WE have AIO's and fitteds. Should it matter? Are there any dyes that are better for babies skin?

Re: White?! Dye?

You may look through the craft forum because there are lots of threads over there about embellishing dipes. From what I've heard, PUL won't hold dye but can be painted. As for fitteds, my only concern would be that it would take a TON of dye and most of it would be wasted since the diaper would soak it up...does that make sense? I was really surprised when I dyed my prefolds at how much dye they soaked up. It's worth a try though.

The kind of dye depends on the kind of fabric. If you're going to dye something just one color, I like Dylon dyes because they're cheap, easy, and fast (soak them for about an hour and you're done). If you want multiple colors on one diaper, I'd highly recommend one of the Rainbow Rock tie-dye kits. They're still fairly cheap and come with detailed instructions, but they have to soak for several hours to get good color so you have to be patient.

Good luck!

I'm trying it today on a white Kushies fitted! I'll post pics when I finish. I'm with you on disliking the white diapers! So boring!
