Dip Dyed Jeans Upcycled with Rit

Upcycle hand me downs with some Rit Dye. These were boring tan jeans. Who wants to start the school year off with boring tan hand me downs when you can have super cool pink and purple pants.

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.
