More anti-pink fun May 1, 2010

Posted by Judy in Sewing projects.

Remember all the fun stuff that got dyed a few weeks back?  Well, I decided to give it another go with some other stuff.  We had gotten a bunch of snow suits and little girls stuff from Freecycle . . .of course, they were pink.  Into the dye bath they went.  (I actually wasn’t at all sure if the snowsuits would work since they were made of nylon.  But, I figured it couldn’t get any worse.)  Here are the mediocre results.  I used red dye, which is apparently quite finicky.  As in, I should have used ALOT more dye.  Oh well . . . .

Snowsuit before.  (The inside of the hood is a fleece material)

Snow suit after.  The fleece didn’t dye very well, but the rest fared a bit better.

Snow bib before

Snow bib after, VERY mediocre results.  It’s still pink, just a darker shade.  But notice that the lining turned a lovely shade of magenta.  Oh well, can’t win them all!
