I do not like red or yellow but when you dye using this technique, you never know what you will get. I got UGLY.
I hauled out my large electric skillet and got to work with the potato masher I affectinately refer to as the "Baked Potato".
I didn't want to use thickened dyes on this because my arm is sore from spraying so I used a bucket and followed Ann Johnston's method of one part water, one part dye solution and one part soda ash. If you want to dye and will buy one DVD, buy hers. Your life will never be the same.
Before I added the soda ash.
I decided to try the hose one more time but this time I dumped my dye bucket and filled it with water from the hose - over and over again. It was pretty well rinsed then I hung it on the line to dry a bit.

Washed and dried.
These two are the "wrong" side of the fabric.
