I was machine dying a bag today and had a quick raid of my room for other stuff to dye...I came up with 4 white hankies and a white pair of pants.

I used dylon machine dye in antique grey and I used elastic bands to do the tie dying...I had a peek half way through the tie dying and thought it hadn't worked, so I was soo surprised and happy when I discovered it had!  Magic!

You can see me tie dye pants to the right of this photo.  They make me laugh. A Lot!  (i also dyed the tshirt by saving a little of the machine dye and mixing it with salt in a bucket then hand dying it to get a lighter shade, I'm really pleased with the colour and its been washed so looks like it worked too!)

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
