    Default Dyeing clothes!

    Is there anyone that's into dyeing or tie dyeing? Would love to see your creations and have a chat.

    I just dyed two of our bonds wonder suits! Can't wait til they are dry!

    Subbing. I bought yellow dye and planning to dye some thick waistband elastic but have been lazy and haven't tried it yet.

    Was wondering if you have any preferred brands and if the colours run when washed after they have been dyed?

    This was the last thing I did for DS2. It has faded quite a bit. I used to do more but don't have a good laundry set up in our new home.

    I've always used Dylon dyes. Colours will not run if you prepare properly and set the dyes. If you follow instructions that come with them you won't have any problems.

    I dyed a bunch of dd's pink/purple bodysuits, singlets, even some trackies etc to dark blue before ds was born. Don't have pictures or the actual items handy (he's 17mths so wayyyyy outgrown them)

    They turned out really well and saved having to buy the extra nb clothes I otherwise would have had to.

    Things like zips won't take on the dye so a couple of bodusuits that had pink zips remained so. A nice touch, blue bodysuit with pink zip😄
