Hello, there! I've spent the last few days trying my hand at some dip-dyeing, and I'm so excited to share what I came up with! This recent dyeing experiment came out of a valiant, if vastly unsuccessful attempt to right a pair of my sister's pants that had been quite wronged by some hand sanitizer. By that, of course, I mean that she tried to remove some tree sap from her pants with hand sanitizer. While it took out the sap brilliantly, it also seeped through to the front of the pants and caused some massive bleach stains (oopsies!) Of course, my first response was "don't even worry about it, we can dye them" only to realize that bleach stains don't really want to be any color than white (or really, some gross yellowish variation of actual white.) After employing many creative (read: ridiculous and very messy, even for an outside project) dyeing techniques, I threw in the towel (or pants: I literally threw the whole pair of pants in my dyeing bucket in an effort to unify the color, to no avail) and moved on to Plan B, which was dying some lace to match the pants, cutting the stains out of the pants, and adding the lace behind the holes. We'll just have to see what happens with hair-brained scheme #2.
I spent the rest of the weekend doing lots of running, practicing, spending time with my sister, and of course, with this guy.
I hope your weekends were as lovely and relaxing as mine was.
