i just couldn't help but fall in love with this dip-dyeing project gallery by martha. i think i especially love the idea that if you don't quite like something, you can change it!
a while back, i bought a pair of teal green yoga pants that were on sale (probably because they were teal green) and never ended up wearing them because of their color. when i finally thought of dyeing them, i said, voila! now they are a dark emerald color and i wear them all the time.
so, let this be inspiration! take an old shirt, basket, stained rug or pillow case and give it a new lease on life. have fun!
