A guide to dip-dying

If you have noticed that the blog hasn't been as well looked after as usual lately, you are right and I'm sorry! I have a lot of deadlines in the upcoming week, so bear with me whilst I finish these!

Although I never carry out any of my plans, I keep dreaming about all the DIY projects I want to do. Lots of them include dip-dying, so when I came across this guide to dip-dying on A Pair And A Spare, I bookmarked it straight away. The overview includes tips such as:
- For an ombre dye, dip the piece in different concentrations of the dye.
- Add salt to your dye mixture to set the dye
- The colour will look much lighter once the garment is dry
It also includes lots of ideas of way to dip-dye your clothes. Check out all the advice here.

  6. Sometimes life stuff gets in the way of blogging stuff, and it can't be helped. Still, you're doing a great job in spite of being so busy. I'm so, so excited about the dip-dye... what a great project for thrift store clothes. :)

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment!
I love checking out your blogs as well, so if you leave a comment I will come visit your blog sometime soon :)
However, I firmly believe that you should follow a blog because you feel inspired, not as part of a follow-for-follow deal. I will NEVER respond to "want to follow each other" requests.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts!
