1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Dying denim black? on: June 09, 2011 02:10:24 AM
Don't waste your time bleaching, it'll actually work better if you don't.

Something that I do when I use rit black is to throw in yellow too, it cuts the purpleish quality of the dye. If you are going to use two packs of black, toss in a pack of yellow as well. 

ohhh thanks for that! i have tried everything to get my 'black' cloth nappies to be actually black, they turned out navy blue so i added a red to make it more purply cos i thought purple was better than navy, now theyre kind of brown and yacky haha

ive also got a baby vest and pair of leggings that i tried to dye black and they came out navy too so next time i'll add a yellow and see what happens, does it have to be a specific kind of yellow cos i think theres a couple of shades in the dyes i can get, i use dylon x

im lucky, i have a massive fabric shop near me that sells everything i could ever ask for

i do also buy a lot from charity shops, i just bought a double duvet cover, double sheet and two pillowcases for 5 and will get sooo many things out of it

also agree with asking friends and family for stuff they dont wear anymore x

I use the floor as well. I'd be terrified of trying to cut on my bed! With my luck, I'd probably shred half the bed before realizing it.

thats what i thought  Cheesy x

i use my floor, what i do if i am pinning things bigger than teh space i have is lay out as much as i can, start pinning and when ive got as much pinned as fits in my space, i move it a bit and pin the next section. Just make sure you pin it well so it doesnt shift too much when you move it. Also, be careful when you cut that it is laid out as neatly as possible and the folded bit is folded neatly etc to make it as accurate as possible, its more difficult but very possible Smiley

^^ agree with this, i doubt youd be able to just remove and replace the elastic if there are holes in the actual fabric, if you use knit material and cut it smaller than the childs waist, you wont even need the elastic, just make it like a yoga waistband x
