Oh I just tried my first one and I think I just made a complete mess of it! I am usually pretty crafty, but I'm just not used to this at all!
I was trying to do one using red and black and the black just faded into EVERYTHING. Like there is barely any red at all.
I am afraid all I did was dye a white shirt black with a couple of red streaks in it. I don't think the Mickey Head is going to stand out at all, it's allll black. Should I do the Mickey head in red?

Any tips?

I had already done the Mickey black. BUT when I rinsed it this morning, it came out OK! There was a white line around the stitching between the blacks, so it still looks like a Mickey head! And there was SOME red in the bottom and back of the shirt so it is OK. My kids like it anyway so that is what counts. Yay!

So now I do have a question though. It seems like a lot of the color came out in the washer, especially the black. I mean it still has plenty, but I am wondering if there is a better way to keep it in there.

On the first rinse, do you use HOT water or cold water? What about in the washer?

Thanks so much! These are so fun, and your newest ones look great!

Super! :D

Black tends to run a lot so its normal to see a lot of dye during the wash. If you left the shirt for 24 hours that is plenty of time, the rest of the dye would have to wash away anyway.
I don't use hot water, just warm water and cold to rinse.

Well I'm not talking so much during the wash, but like I rinsed it REALLY well before the wash, and it looked one way, and then after it looked like it faded quite a bit from what it was, and there were more white areas in the shirt. And in the area like where the outline was it was pretty gray looking after rinsing but after the wash it was white and seemed like a larger area, which is fine, but I just wonder how much washed out of other areas if those are just the ones I noticed.
But that's OK That still may be the answer, I just wanted to clarify what I meant in case I was being confusing.

Thanks for all your help!

Oh i see, well the dye that didn't cured will wash away, you might want to leave them longer than 24 hours.

Where did you ladies find the girls dresses. I think I saw that they were faded glory = walmart?? But here in Ohio we're halfway to winter.

Any online sources for cute girls dye-able dresses?

TIA!

I got mine from Wal mart online way back in March, they are way gone right now.. I Love that brand, they are organic cotton, super soft, doesn't shrink and the colors look super, vivid and pretty.

Pixie,
Since we know you order from dharma, what black do you get? I see they have 4 different ones. I just thought of this because the shirt I actually have on now I used black on (Jacquard Procion's version) and it has a definitely blue hue to it, which is fine because the other colors are blue and lime green. I was just wondering if you have a preference in the black dyes and/or have better results with one vs the other.
