11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Failed Dye Job-but maybe I should keep it? on: June 23, 2009 01:45:33 AM
So I tried and failed to dye a bunch of things black. Three of the things look exactly the same as they did before except sort of dirty, but the other two underwent interesting changes.
A white button up blouse I bought turned this weird periwinkle color:

and a bright orange-ish red sweater turned this maroon color:

(The buttons are the original color of the sweater).

I wear almost exclusively black, but I found these colors rather interesting.

What say you? Should I redye them and hope for black or should I leave them be?
PS what'd I do wrong? I used Rit if that helps, in a bucket and I stirred the whole thing with my hands for an hour. You do not want to know what they look like right now.

Thanks in advance.

as opposed to cotton or anything else? I want to make a red pleather jacket but I've never sewn anything before and I'm wondering if there's anything I should watch out for.

13  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Moose slippers way too big... on: November 12, 2008 01:41:00 PM
hey there. I have these moose slippers (not the slip on sort, the ones that go all the way around like a regular shoe) and I can't wear them properly because the size is way too big and my feet simply fall right out. I want to make the inside smaller, but I'm not sure how to go about it. Would I just stitch the heel of the slipper on on the inside, or should I take it apart and do something else?
Thanks in advance.
14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Dyeing a faded shirt with multiple colors-questions! on: September 08, 2008 12:30:57 AM
Hey there. I have this shirt thing that I'd love to redye. When I bought it it was black, but now it's a sort of gray color. The problem is it6's got these little dancing white skeletons and red stars and red cherries on it. if I were to dye the thing black again, would all of the little details be destroyed?
Thanks in advance.
