Linda Matthews shared tips on tye-dyeing a pre-made bag on her weekly Creative Cloth Bag post. I decided to take what I learned from the previous week’s Thirty Minute Tote Bag tutorial and make another bag out of muslin.
Using Tulip One-Step Tye Dye kit, I followed Linda’s instructions and dyed this bag. I love the colors and it was so much fun!
I had way too much dye mixed for just one bag so I looked around the studio and found some other things that needed color.
|This is my favorite!|
I still have left-over dye. The kit says the dye will “lose concentration and will result in noticeably weaker color intensity” if not used within 45 minutes of mixing. I can’t bear to just throw it away, so when I have a few minutes I may use the left-over dye to color some muslin, hoping for pastel colors. If I don’t like the color, I can cover it in a variety of ways.
