DIY: Dip Dyed Nylites
12/03/2012 § 16 Comments
The folks at Tretorn were nice enough to include me in the Nylite Project, sending me a pair of sparkling white canvas Nylites which I spent an evening dip-dying pink. Full admission: As I am not well-schooled in the art of fabric dying, I used red Dylon dye, thinking they would be much more red, but I am quite pleased with the pink ombre that resulted — better for spring!
Dip Dye DIY
- Moisten shoes, prepare dye in stainless steel sink, according to package instructions.
- Dunk half of shoes into the dye, hung over the faucet.
- Fall asleep for three hours. (This step is optional)
- Remove from dye and allow to dry overnight. (I cheated and put mine on the heater.)
