Things to know:
- The cheap Walmart brand of fabric dye (the powders) doesn't work as well.
- Make sure your gradient is straight across the top and even on both leg.
- Even if they look like the color you want them after a few minutes of dying, remember after being washed, the color will fade (Mine above have already been washed)
- Don't wash your freshly dyed jeans with other clothes for the first several times. Unless you want everything a slight shade of your color.
- Dark blue denim
\\ Find a safe place to set up and get to reading the directions on your fabric dye. I chose my kitchen sink, and a bucket. Gather yo jeans and dye!
\\ Once you have filled up your bucket/sink with the appropriate temperature of water and number of gallons, wet your jeans as high as you want to dye them.
\\ Read your directions and add the dye. Now dip your jeans in as far as you want the dye to go up. After a couple seconds, pull them out several more inches so the bottoms can be darker than the top. You may keep pulling more out and soaking it back in to make the gradient more even. I did this for about 30 minutes. Just make sure you never leave it all the way in too long! When your finished, follow washing directions on your dye.
For now, enjoy your Monday!
