Today my mom and I started dying some of my sheets and towels for when I go back to college in the fall, since the color on my sheets faded a little. My mom suggested that we should throw in something that was plain white and cotton with everything else so we could use it as a sort of canary in the coal mine to see how the dye turned out. We ended up dying quite a few articles of clothing.

We dyed everything in 2 batches, one purple, and one a dark blue-grey.

We dyed a slip:


3 of my brother's t-shirts:


and my favorite, 5 pairs of underpants of mine that were a little worse for the wear, and now make me quite happy:

Cute! I love tie-dye looking underwear! I kept a pair for way too long when I was younger.
The slip is really pretty too.
The color is kind of similar to when my dad put our new eggplant colored placemats in the white load of laundry.
Really pretty color, unfortunately the white clothing was mostly my brother's clothes that he preferred to be not purple.
Anyway, good job!

Beginning of school year resolutions: Granny-square blanket, scarf for the man, swimsuit bottoms, better organization for crafting supplies, computer case of some kind, 2 amigurumi and a pair of underwear.

i feel so ridiculously dorky for saying this, but, i love the undies!
i'm a student that has just discovered how expensive life is when one doesn't have a steady job. recently i've had to give up buying all my Fancy panties so that i might be able to afford other slightly more important items, and now i'm pumped. you've inspired me. believe it or not, it IS possible to be broke and have pretty panties at the same time!
tie-dye is so fabulous.
