Re: Holy Dye Batman! Dylon LWI - New dye job, need some thoughts!

Ok, here goes... (I got a lil carried away, both w/pix and how much i decided to dye! )
Canvas Grocery bag: (too bad the bottom came out the best! )



T-Shirt: (learned on this one... did actual tie dye, and since i didn't want the colors to run as much-which they did anyway-i didn't use a ton o' dye, but it's waaaaay whiter than i'd like, so next time... I"m pourin' it on!!!)


Socks: (there are too many non-cotton fibers apparently in my socks cuz the outside has a web of white-i assume it's the elastic-that didn't take the dye, so i took shots of them inside out... i think i'll pass on t-d socks in the future lol!)


Here's the sock from the outside, looks funky...:

Socks #2:


MF insert... Ok what r these things made out of??? I thought mf was mostly cotton, but by the way it took (or didn't take) the dye, i can see i was mistaken lol! Looks like an accident... no more mf insert-dyeing either i guess!


I saved my faves for last!
gDipe #1 3-color (pink/purple/turquoise) I used ur scrunch method for this:

insides:

gDipe #2, did a twist for this one, but I didn't really get the twist effect I was hoping for, new idea for next time tho, and I still love how it came out anyway!! (Except I forgot to peel the 'g' off! Darn it!)


insides:

Wowse Wendyr!

MF is polyester

The bag and gdiapers are truuly awesome! I am getting some prefold for inserts soon. Maybe I'll have to practice on them. I'd love to get some Cotton velour to dye as well.

Maybe some toddler t-shirt too for night night.

OMG Wendy!!!!! Those look AMAZING!!! LOve, love those gdiapers. (I have heard that Dylon fades more quickly on diapers and stuff than Procion dyes - maybe because diapers get so heavily used/washed? Can you let me know how that goes?)

But WOW - love it ALL. Thank you, thank you for posting! I'm going to edit the original post to reflect the other dye jobs being posted, hope you ladies don't mind.

Thanks!!!! I have experienced dye-fade myself, on some hemp sb'ish flats we got off fsot. I have no idea what they were dyed w/but of course, now I'm just gonna re-dye em. I will def lyk how these gDipes hold up. Tho we are pl'ing and using our dipes less and less (if it were up to only me, I'd not be using em at all, but dh isn't fully into pl'ing yet, lol!) so my "test" may not be a true picture, but it'll give us some idea.

And I think it's awesome that ur editing the op to include all of our posts-THANKS!!!
