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

  1. Moisten shoes, prepare dye in stainless steel sink, according to package instructions.
  2. Dunk half of shoes into the dye, hung over the faucet.
  3. Fall asleep for three hours. (This step is optional)
  4. Remove from dye and allow to dry overnight. (I cheated and put mine on the heater.)

Voila!  I’m crafty!
