Stupidly left DD's uniforms on the line for a day or two too long. The dark blue of the bottoms and the red tops now have sun bleach/faded lines through them Is it possible to somehow redye them? Google isn't being a lot of help. Is it as easy as soaking them in blue or red fabric dye?
I'm not sure, but that must of been some extreme heat. I am in Perth where it is super hot and no fading issues even when the clothes have been left on the line for 2-3 days. Maybe I need to hang the bright colours in the shade?
It was extreme heat and we had some health issues going on so they got hung and ignored for longer than I care to admit I like the idea of hanging in the carport, it would be easy to run a line across, thanks.
I might visit spotlight tomorrow and do a test shirt, see if it affects the logos.
If they are cotton, they will dye very well. If the logo's are synthetic thread, they shouldn't be affected. I have a few Bonds wondersuits that dyed beautifully and the sewn on Bonds logo on the chest wasn't changed in any way.
I love dying clothes! My favourite dye is the dylon machine dye thst they sell at Woollies because the washing machine does all the hard work. Works best in a front loader. I wear lots of black which always fades on the line so I re dye it all every few months and they're like new again.
With the cooler weather upon us, here is a collection of easy winter inspired cut, sew, knit crafts that you can do with the kids. There are glove monsters, no-sew scarfs, and sock snowmen. Winter is a great time to get crafting.
Fidgets and other sensory hand held toys are a great way to encourage attention and concentration. We all love to rock on a chair and click our pens or chew gum to stay alert and attentive, so why not let children have functional and socially acceptable fidgets too, to help them learn and keep them focused on learning.
