I loved Dappis better than any cover for my newborn. OP, love the dye!

I got Rit dye in a few colors, went to their website to learn formulas for specific colors (they have an easy chart with measurements included), and then followed the "recipe" for a particular color. I used 2 cups of water with the recommended colors (they call for 1 cup of water, but when I tried that the color turned out REALLY dark - that's how I got a black cover haha).

So yeah, 2 cups of water, the recommended recipe for dye, and then about 1/2 a cup of vinegar. I put all of that, well mixed, on the stove in an old pan I don't use anymore on medium heat. Stir for a few minutes, and the color starts to stick! I think the vinegar is the key for bright colors.

I love pull ons too! I love that you dyed them! I might have to try that. How's the bleeding now? What do you use under them for your diaper?

Re: Does anybody love those Dappi pull-on covers?

Those came out so well! I love Dappis. I haven't used them with my current baby in diapers but did with all my other kids. I will have to resist the urge! That said, I wish I knew about those Nikky pull ons. I would have gotten those!

I use flats and fitteds. I love the coverage of these covers. So awesome!

They are still bleeding a teeny bit after soaking them in hot water with Dawn. I think if I were to wash them in a full load, it would be so minimal that it wouldn't affect anything. I put the red one on my little guy after only washing it once, and when he peed, the red bled onto his fitted. I freaked out but then soaked it and washed it and the dye came right out. Now I know to wash a few times! :P

Ok, those look great! I think I may want to get more and dye them in fun colors too! It's been awhile since I used dappi pull on covers, but I love how yours turned out!
