This project made me nervous, it's something I'd never done before.
I wanted a nice heavy duty fabric in plain black for a project we'll talk about tomorrow. The only thing I could find was some heavy canvass but it looked like this.
I washed my fabric and then I took this bottle
I filled my sink with hot water (I didn't want to use the washing machine because it's a front load and I rent) and dumped in the entire contents of the bottle. I should have only need half but it said for dark colours double the quantity. Scary looking hey?
I added my fabric and let it soak while I stirred and agitated for 40 minutes.
The end result was not bad. It sort of looks like an old black t-shirt, kind of faded. For this project that'll be just fine but I think if I dyed it one more time I'd get an even better colour.
I would dye fabric again though, it wasn't as scary as I thought.
This post was long enough so come back tomorrow to see what I use the fabric for.
