I'm going to go for it and hope for the best. If nothing else, I at least tried
Dyeing FabricThe one thing I really like about minky fabrics is the large color selection. But...every now and again, I get an order for a color that does not exist in minky. Typically I'll just use what ever color is the closest to it, but this time I actually felt like experimenting with fabric dyeing.Dyeing Fabric by LiLMoon
The commissioner wanted a color that was lighter than the lavendar minky that is available. So that would mean it would just be the lightest touch of purple. I found a wonderful tutorial online: http://www.danamadeit.com/2008/07/tutorial-easy-fabric-dyeing.html . It shows you how to dye fabrics without using your washing machine or boiling water.
I ended up using only a PINCH of fabric dye from the dye packet I bought. Looks alot darker in the bowl though. A good amount of the dye comes out once you wash the fabric again.
