Re: Dyeing a Wool Soaker - Picture Tutorial

I'm really not trying to bump my own thread but I just wanted to report that the color did not run at all!! It worked like a charm, and her sheets and the Dream-Eze fitted I put under it showed no signs of blue.

Re: Dyeing a Wool Soaker - Picture Tutorial

That is awesome mama! I have a Crat soaker that I *tried* to tie-dye but it came out horribly, so I was thinking of trying to over-dye it, maybe I will try with the koolaid! Would that take overtop Dylon? Anyone tried this?

I also just got two Rumpknits undyed soakers off FSOT that I want to dye....looks like I have my tutorial all ready! Thanks! Really helpful! Now, off to find some Kool-aid......

Re: Dyeing a Wool Soaker - Picture Tutorial

Got another Babyology soaker yesterday, so I dyed it with Strawberry Kool-aid.

Re: Dyeing a Wool Soaker - Picture Tutorial

Very nice!!! The colors are sooo vibrant!!!

I have a soaker I made that I dyed orange with koolaid. I did it in the microwave and only did half at a time and did the bottom darker then the top (on purpose) I was dying it to match a pillow case dress DD has that's orange paisley. I'll post a pic sometime.

I'd like to try the stove top way next time. But it took me forever to make that one soaker (sewing is not my talent) so I've been hesitant to try again!! lol
