Directions for Dip Dyed Jeans:

The pants were really simple to make. I dampened the pants, just  dipped them, above the knee,  in Fuchsia Rit dye mixed with hot water.  Next I added some Purple Rit Dye to the Fuchsia and dipped the jeans again.  I folded the jeans in half  and this created the splotchy effect.  I rinsed the jeans in cold water.  I wanted to leave a little bit of the dye in the jeans so that when washed, the dye would softly color the remaining tan.

About the Rit Dye back pack:

To make this project I used a canvas mini-backpack and Purple Rit Dye.  I had the leftover pink rosette from another project.  I still have not finished that project.  I will very soon though.  I dipped the backpack into hot dye and let soak.  I washed and dried the backpack and then added the rosette.  The rosette is in Petal Pink. I used a hot glue gun to attache the buttons along the edge, on the rosette and to adhere the rosette.  I added Smooch Glitz as my toddler likes all things glittery.
