My dye job

Normally I am not a very crafty person. I have dappled in scrapbooking some a couple years ago, and I definitely enjoyed it...I just haven't had the time (or space) to continue it since then. I really want to learn to sew on a sewing machine. I think I'd love creating things from all the beautiful fabrics available. I dream of pillows, table runners, curtains, dresses and diaper covers, Oh my!

In the meantime, I saw online that some moms dye their diapers to make them cuter and more fun. I thought that sounds like a cheap and easy way to be crafty and make my diapers more fun (mostly for me...since D could care less what colors are on his bum, haha). Since I had 7 plain white diapers, I thought I'd give it a try!

So, I went to Joann's and picked up some Dylon dye in a beautiful aqua color and got right to work as soon as I got home. It turned out so wonderfully that the next day I went and picked up some yellow and blue dye as well. Those turned out great too! Yay! So far I have had no problems with them bleeding in the wash even though I wash in very hot water. So, check out my recent projects.... I am so proud :-)

Remember they started out plain on the pictures to make them bigger if you REALLY want to see how nice and evenly they came out (if you care, haha)!


  1. How cute!!! You make me want to dye my Kissaluvs and Cricketts! They really turned out great. :o)

  2. Good job Randi! You are so crafty! That last pic of David is the best... I want a copy of that. Oh, I love the new look of the blog too. It is very festive and fallish!
