I tried this with some pull on Dappi covers but it did not work. It only dyed the FOE. Oh well, I guess I did something wrong. I put them all up on FFS a while back and they went quickly, So I guess they were liked though.

Mine didn't bleed anymore after several washings..

However I used blue kool aid and one grape and my cover turned out tye dye. Very cool.

I love the way those turned out!! Out of curiosity, did you dye them differently or use generic koolaid (always wondered if this would make a difference)?

Re: Dappi Nylon Kool Aid Dye Pictorial

What a great idea! I'd never though to dye my Dappis, I love my Dappis though, by far my fav non-wool cover. I bet I could dye them w/ the acid dyes I use for wool

Question Re: Dappi Nylon Kool Aid Dye Pictorial

What happens if you don't use vinegar with the kool aid? I was dyeing some FOE and forgot to use vinegar with the first batch. The color took will it bleed more? Some people say you don't need vinegar with kool aid because it already is an acid. True or False?

Good question. I'll keep this bumped for you.
