Can you use RIT to dye lace? Something tells me you can't! lol If not, is there somewhere I can get a little bit of lace that is already coloured? Thanks!

It depends on what the lace is made out of. Look around at craft stores for your colored lace.

I dyed the lace that I used for my converse all stars.  It was just the cheap lace that you can buy at the fabric store on the spools.  I wanted pink lace and I couldn't find any, so I used rit and it worked just fine.  I don't see why you couldn't use rit on nicer lace.

I had good luck dying some lace that was like 80% cotton with Rit dye, but it was a darker color. I dont know how a lighter color would turn out...

If it has enough cotton in it you can dye it.  I saw a show once where they tea-dyed a bunch of seventies hot orange and green trim and made it into autumnal orange and green trim.

When in doubt, sauerkraut.
