Clothing Dye

I guess I forgot I had a blog!
Not that what I blog about is all that interesting or anything, but I think it may be fun to look back on one day. 
I randomly got the idea to dye a pair of jeans I never wear.  I bought these thinking I would like the color, but something about it doesn't look good with my pale skin so I never wear these gray/silver pants.  
I got some Rit Dye, green of course, and this is how they turned out.
(I used 4.5 gallons of water, 1.5 cups of salt and 3/4 a bottle of liquid dye, Kelley Green-stovetop technique.)
I love them!  I wore them to work today.  They are going to be perfect for St. Patty's day :)
I have a dress that I never wear for the same reason and I'm thinking of dyeing it.  Just trying to figure out what color.

  1. That's a great idea...and I was just telling Ryan on St Patty's Day that I loved all the green jeans everybody was wearing. Maybe I should try this with my maternity jeans since I am apparently still sporting them.
