Here we go…I started with the below Doilies
- Dye – I used Dylon Permanent Fabric Dye
- Stainless Steel Bowl
- Measuring Cups/Spoons
- Mixing Rod/Stick
- An Apron
Step 1: Weigh dry fabric. For this dye 250g on fabric will use one packet. I saved the rest.
Step 2: Wash thoroughly & leave damp (below)
Step 3: Wearing Rubber Gloves & Apron dissolve dye in 500ml warm water
Step 4: Stir well
Step 5: Fill stainless steal laundry sink with approx 6 litres of warm water
Step 6: Stir in 5 tablespoons of salt.
Step 7: Add dye & stir well (below)
Step 7: Submerge fabric into dye. Stir for 15mins, then regularly for 45mins.
Step 8: Rinse fabric in cold water

And this is what you get…
