Hi there,

I just got my very first apartment...

after buying furniture i'm totally broke for a while... a relative gave me a futon cover but it's an ugly, ugly light pink and green swirl color.  Would it be possible to simply dye it a solid black using fabric dye?  Any advice would be great!  Thanks a million.

i am just about to try the same thing on the cover to a couch that someone gave me, it seems like about the same colors too!  i am just going to bleach mine first, then dye it with dark red rit dye, i will let you know how it turns out.

congrats on the new apt! try rit, it's cheap and if it turns out sucky you can always dye it black

If it is a thicker material try letting sit a little longer in the dye.  As someone stated before bleaching might be beneficial.
