you wiN some, you LosE some...right? bored the other day. wanted to do some haNDs-oN exploring with little man.
i bought these dOiLiES at the dollar tree with the idea of making a table runner like the one i saw hErE at under the sycamore
since the base of my table is white, i wanted to make them colored to add a little pOp. i was curious as to whether or not food coloring would dye fabric. so we gave it a whirl.
then we did some shirts...
and then after all of our exploration, came the moMeNT oF tRuTH....
i washed them
so i bought an actual tie-dye kit at hobby lobby yesterday and we'll do it all again with the rEaL sTuFF. after i re-dye the doilies for the runner, i'll stitch them together and post another shot.
and thanks to christy from christy's cuties for giving me the courage to post my own project fail. and for amanda from crafts by amanda for showing us all the right way to do it!
incidentally, here's how to do it right at crafts by amanda
