My Kool-Aid Dyeing Workshop


Saturday morning was my Kool-Aid Dyeing workshop. Last summer I presented my Kool-Aid dyed yarn babette to my sister-in-law for a baby shower gift. Two of my mom's friends were interested in learning and we finally got around to doing this workshop. It was just the four of us, me, mom, Lu and Michelle, but we had a blast! I had made this Kool-Aid yarn color chart last week and really had fun with that.








We each tried painting skeins and dyeing a solid skein. Here are two of the painted skeins that I did.

I have one more painted and my solid that were still drying at my parents' house.

One of these days, when I finally teach myself to crochet, I would love to learn how to do this! Glad you guys had fun! :)

No Way! I've never heard of this before! Do tell! Does kool-aid work on fabric or better yet, paper? Looks like I'll be going to the store.

Nena, it works on wool and silk. If you search my blog for kool aid I have some links to other sites with more info.
