Last night I was sewing my doily table runner up, but sitting on the floor hunched over got old fast, so I grabbed the one doily I had left over and tried dying it. Last week I dyed the paper doilies, which turned out pretty.
I used most of the dye in the little bottle above, got my white doily out, and...
....dunked it in the dye! I left the doily in the dye for a bit, but it surprisingly did NOT absorb the dye like I thought it would. I was a bit bummed. Maybe the doily needed to be washed before hand? -But then it might unravel? Any ideas? ps I got the doilies on SUPER sale at Urban Outfitters awhile ago.
I rinsed the doily in cold water and let it dry overnight.
It's okay, not exactly what I was thinking when I started, but I like it!
If you try this doily dyeing let me know how yours turn out and if you try any different methods!
Hope you're having a very wonderful day!
