yeah, I just mixed two packets of Kool-Aid in HOT water.  Held the top upside down and dipped several times.  It takes a while for all the color to be absorbed, so I just kept dipping until the water turned clear.  Then rinse in HOT water, then cooler water until the water runs clear.  I then washed the whole thing in some Woolite.  Used a towel to squeeze the water out and then reshaped it and laid it flat to dry. 

I should also mention that Kool-Aid only dies animal fibers, there are other dyes for cotton, and as far as I know, you can't dye acrylic.

Thanx for telling me that. I use alot of Red Heart and Bernat and they are both 100% Acrylic. I have some Sugar 'n' Cream but they are all Variegated or however you spell it. So can you kool aid dye 100% cotton yarn? Also what other kind like the name brand of the yarn so I'll know what to get.

No, I don't believe that Kool-Aid will dye cotton yarn.  It has to be animal fiber like, wool, angora, mohair, alpaca.  RIT will dye cotton.  You may be able to find other dyes for cotton at you local fabric or craft store. 

Lion Brand makes a pretty inexpensive 100% wool yarn.  Also, you can get natural colored yarn to dye for pretty cheap from www.knitpicks.com .
