Do you wish you could choose the exact colour of your yarn? Then you've got to try hand-dyeing it yourself! Dyeing yarn with fabric dye for hand-washing is fun and easy. By combining different colours, you can make new ones: yellow + blue = green, pink + blue = purple, and so forth. Wear gloves when dyeing the yarn to protect your hands. Try things out as you go and see what colours you can create. You can also try dyeing the yarn with different methods, using the techniques below.
1. Striped: Dip different parts of the yarn in different colours for striped results when knitting.
2. Variegated: Drip the dye in drops of various sizes onto the yarn for a variegated effect when knitting.
3. Dots: Drip evenly sized dots of 2-3 cm with a pipette, which will create dots when knitting.
Lay the table for a party with beautiful watercolour napkins! Tie-dying will give your napkins the lovely look of a watercolour - a gorgeous detail at a confirmation, wedding or another celebration. The longer you let the fabric soak, the more intense the colour will be. The colour will be most vibrant if you don't rinse the fabric at all. Roll up cutlery in the napkins and tie with a piece of twine. Decorate the knot with a tassel. Tie-dyed napkins are washable at 40°C. Wash separately the first couple of times.
Give old T-shirts a new lease of life with fabric paint and resist-dyeing! This fabric paint makes it easy to give your old garments the lovely look of a watercolour painting. Boldly experiment with the paint by spreading, spattering and dotting it on, and by crinkling up the garment. When you are pleased with the design, fix the paint in the oven. Then make cool patterns with stencils. The only limit is your imagination!
Give old clothes a new lease of life using fabric dye and the art of dye-resist! This runny fabric dye is suitable for use on white and pale-coloured cotton garments. The dye has a great watercolour quality, making it perfect for recolouring clothes using tie-dye. For a stubborn stain on a pair of trousers or a top, don't discard them, but upcycle and transform them using tie-dye! We used a bright pink dye, but you can adjust the shade just the way you want it. Dyed clothes are washable at 40 °C. Wash separately the first couple of times.
The Japanese shibori dyeing technique allows you to create beautiful resist-dye patterns by folding fabric instead of tying it with string. Japanese resist dyeing requires a bit more precision, but thin watercolour fabric dye makes it easy to achieve the shibori effect. Dye ordinary white cotton fabric or old sheets. Then you can make beautiful cushion covers, bags, quilts and other interior decor details with shibori patterns. You can also try dyeing kitchen towels to make a classic checked towel with a fresh twist.
Make a Europop top featuring a portrait of yourself or someone special in pixelated Eurovision song-contest style. Sketch out your design first or just pixel free-hand. To make the neat pixel squares, stamp on dye using squared foam rubber sponges, either ready-cut or cut free hand. Remember to choose a palette of colours to match however dark or light your top is. We used fabric dye for dark fabrics for our T-shirt.
Make a lovely lantern for decoration at your garden party! Best of all: you will have a use for old, worn-out sheets or other fabric. The thin, fluid paint produces a beautiful watercolour-like look and works best on cotton fabric. Spray with water and rinse the fabric a bit to create soft, subdued pastel shades. If you want a light source in your lantern as the evening begins to darken, use a battery-operated LED bulb for outdoor use.
Transform fabric bags into your own personalised shopping bags! These thin fabric paints produce the wonderful look of watercolours and are perfect for tie-dye and techniques in which the colours flow together. Tie-dye involves tying knots around the fabric before dyeing it. You can also choose to paint the bag with a foam rubber brush. Colours that flow together: Start by painting the bottom portion of the bag with the darkest colour. Spray with water and see how the colour runs. Leave some white in between, apply the next colour and spray with water. The paint will move upwards, so wait before adding more. Alternate colours and repeat until you are satisfied. Let the colour seep to the back, or paint the back the same way as the front. Let the fabric dry and then fix the paint.
Lay the table for a celebration with your own hand-painted cloth napkins! With this fabric paint, you can reuse old sheets or other scraps to make napkins with a beautiful watercolour look. Shape the napkins into cones and tie with a piece of hemp twine. Write guests' names on labels and attach them to the twine. If you like, decorate each napkin with a few dried flowers.
