I've dyed lots of things in the past (heck, look at the stains in my sink if you need proof!), but my latest dying project didn't turn out quite how I had hoped.
I wanted to dye reclaimed t-shirts (red and green) and then cut them into strips for strings to tie on my Christmas packages (wrapped in plain brown kraft paper).
When I had them in the dye bath, they looked like great, bright colors of red and green. After drying, they appeared more like orange and a blah.
But you know what? I'm going to use them anyway. When put together, they look a little more festive than orange and blah.
