11  Muddy Dog Paw Jeans to Cool Dyed Jeans in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by pvwon on: February 27, 2004 08:15:26 AM
I've been poking around on this site for a little while and all I can say is wow.  There are some terrific ideas here.  So all of this creativity has taken me back to my teenage days.  I grew up in the costume shop of a University where my mother was the theatrical costumer, so I've been sewing, dying, and reconstructing fabrics for a while.  (My dad was the scenic designer, but that's an entirely different set of projects.)

One of my favorite projects in my teenage years used to be dying blue jeans.  A little eighties, I know, but I've done it again.  I took an older pair of boot cut jeans with muddy dog paw prints on the thighs and dyed them RIT Scarlet. (I used two packets in one "small" washer load, following the directions on the inside of the packet).  

They turned out well.  Y'all should try it too.  Its a great way to reclaim your favorite jeans that you spilled lunch on or have dog paw prints on, etc.

I hope that the pictures below work.  Im new at all of this.
