More tie-dye

Is it the nice weather that's got everyone in a tie-dye mood lately or are we just feeding each others' addictions? Either way, here are some more pics. I'm happy with how these came out, but in general, I think I like the Rainbow Rock dyes better...they seemed to give more vibrant colors and so far I've just washed them a handful of times to stop them from bleeding, but they seem to be holding those brilliant colors better than the Dylon that I did yesterday. Is it just me? Maybe I did use the wrong kind of Dylon dye (Permanent Fabric Dye?) I like how the Dylon came out when I just soaked them but not so much when I tried to get fancy. And for whoever was asking about red dye the other day, these were done with Dylon's poppy red...it is REALLY red!!

Thanks! If you see any you're crazy about, send me a PM and I could probably be persuaded to part with them cheap. These are preemies and infants and I have some more infants and premiums on the way. I want to have a few made into prefitteds by Tammy at Tinkle Traps but I'm having so much fun dying them that I want an excuse to keep it up. Besides, since dh caught me yesterday, it would really help if I could tell him I sold some and need to make some more!

I also got to a few shirts and some white sheets . . .

I diluted the dye quite a bit and the colors are a bit muted, but I really like the brightness and how they turned out.
