Fabric dyeing update

I know I said I just wanted to dye sheets, but then I looked at the bag of clothing I've accumulated that is perfectly good except for minor stains that I can't get out, and the white T-shirts that I've managed to accumulate even though I hate wearing white, and I thought I might as well try to dye those things too, and in that case I might as well try the simpler "iDye" stuff and see if the results are colorfast enough that I could dye the sheets with it without the sheets then dyeing all the rest of our linens. So for now I've ordered some iDye and fixative, and if that doesn't work out, I'll go back and order the Procion dyes and take advantage of my friends' kind offers of small quantities of the chemicals that I didn't want to have large quantities of lying around.

Thanks to everyone who responded!

Your talk of dyeing fabric has me thinking that rather than ordering or buying some laces for my skates that I might just dye them the colour that I want. I can't seem to find purple skate laces in the length I need anywhere. :)

Hey, good idea. I've been having trouble finding purple shoelaces of any length.
