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

I did 5 flats, my colors aren't as great as yours...maybe next time I'll be better but they are more fun than my regular unbleached flats! Thanks a million for the great site and coupon code - all I need is more fabric to add to my stash and list of thigs 'to do'!

Ohhhhh Maggie - I can't wait to see it! Hmmm... what to do with 2 yards of beautiful, dyed OBV? Blanket? Pillowcase? Crazy comfortable pants? Or you could just keep it as a big beautiful pile of fabric and let your kids roll around in it (and you too if you feel the urge, LOL). My daughter wanted something dyed, so I got a yard of OBV and did some pink and orange for her. She loves it and takes it all over the house - I didn't even sew it up for her! LOL. Crazy kid.

Oh mama how awesome!!!! YAY - thank you so much for the pics! How'd the process go for you? Was it as you thought it would be? I haven't tried PFs or flats yet...

They look great and definitely more fun than plain ones! Great job! You know, they remind me of an Impressionist painting that I can't remember the name of. By Monet... I think it had water lilies and lily pads in it.

Water lillies...hadn't thought about that! Not sure how well this would work with pf's since their so much thinker, I think they'd absorb the dye funny. Yes, it went pretty well, hoewver I got interrupted and had to rush to finish due to unforseen circumstances so I think they'd had turned out a little differently if I didn't have to rush. I'm going to try again for sure, just don't know when I'll have the opportunity.

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

Ok Jenn I have all sortsa lil vats o' creations sittin' all over my kitchen right now... funny how many white things u can find when u open up ur mind to "Hey, it's just a blah de blah, so much more fun if it wasn't white (or natural)"!! I am currently doing 2 gDipes, a canvas shopping bag, a white tee from a casino (their insignia IS on the upper corner, but it's just a sleep tee for me) and couple pairs of socks. I tried all different ways of scrunching, twisting and banding, so we'll see in a few hrs what we come up with. Dh was in on it too, dd is napping, what a fun project!!! THX for the inspiration and will def post pix!!!!

Oh and thx for the link to the CV site... def. gonna hafta get me some-I wanna do a blankie and matching pillow case for dd. Is that always their price for CV?

Wendy I can't wait!!!!! How fun! My DH loves to do the dyeing with me too - he gets so excited, it's cute!!

I'm so excited to see all the different stuff you did and the different techniques you used!

As far as the CV, I think that's always their price. They've had that CV for a least a month or two now and it hasn't changed. The only thing that has changed is that they had a bunch more colors in stock that they no longer carry. I am so tempted to buy a bunch of the white in case they run out and don't restock. So far I've been a good girl but I contemplate it almost every time I turn on my computer.

Oohhh can't wait for your pictures!

Aha! It's done and in the dryer and it came out soooo cool! But now that it's dark, I think pix wouldn't be so great, so I'm gonna do em in the morning!

Ooh and cool "reuse" idea: dh poked a hole w/a hot push pin in the top of a disposable water bottle and that's what i used to squirt the dye on w/... just thought I'd pass it along!!
