ok, someone direct me to directions on dip dying. I will try some prefolds first. If they turn out, then onto the GM's

Would you use dylon? I am feeling the need for a dark lime green diaper, and I think my chocolate GM would look great if it went green. You go first, and the let us know. I'm also interested in how long it takes to rinse the color out of all of those squishy layers.

That's what I was going to suggest.

Dip-dyeing isn't that hard, IMO. I just hang one side into the dye water and then rinse really well before doing the other side.

ok, so I will do a prefold in the morning. If it looks good, I will go ahead and do a GM. I have 9 colors of dylon just waiting for me to do something with it.

I can't talk you out of it. I think it sounds like an awesome idea. If you are comfortable with dye I'm sure you will only be making something that is already great into something that is truly amazing!
I love the dyed BV stuff I've seen. I am just way too chicken to try. I was just thinking I was going to make some of my prefolds pretty.
Totally do it and be sure to post pics
