|Note: The throw in this photo is concealing all kinds of junk I couldn't be bothered to move off the sofa for this photo.|
I chose the Tulip Red dye because we have various red things like a rug and a bin so I thought it would match nicely. Once dyed I was then planning on embroidering the throw in some beauteous manner.
In went the dye, the salt and the throw.
I was mildly concerned that my washing machine suddenly looked like it belonged in a Japanese horror film. I hoped really hard that this wasn't a permanent condition. To be sure I ran the throw through several wash cycles.
Then I took it out and this....THIS.... was the result.....
Is that red? Is it?? Noooooo. Very likely I should have used more than one packet of dye. This photo doesn't quite do justice to what a BRIGHT shade of pink the sofa throw now is.
Oh the horror!!
