A Little Dyeing
They are being used for this.
I used a bunch of them. Five different colors, and I hope, light medium and dark of each color. I don't know if the yellow will look light medium and dark, but I used lemon yellow, fuchsia and turquoise as the primary colors and mixed orange (well really yellow orange), purple and green.
I didn't do a light medium and dark of the green, because I did that last week, but now I'm thinking I should. It's not too late!
Here are the 15 buckets. I think I am going to let them batch till tomorrow afternoon (unless I get too antsy and do them before I go to dinner tonight).
I've had these containers in the drawer since we moved back in the house and haven't used them till today. It has been about 3 years. Yay that I had them, though.
I also did two more 100 foot clotheslines. One is a rainbow (see above) and the other I used just the turquoise, green and purple. When I bought the clothesline this time I saw that there is some polyester in it, so that may be why it didn't dye very dark. I'll wait a bit longer today and see if it dyes more than a pastel this time.
