Hi I'm Kali from Online Fabric Store.

Since dye is one of the quickest and easiest ways to add color to a project,

or to an existing piece of fabric, today I'm going to be demonstrating a

simple immersion technique using Rit Dye.

Rit Dye is great for all skill levels because it contains a mixture of

several different types of dye, making it a really great option if you want to dye

something that's a blend or contains multiple kinds of fibers

For this project you'll need: Rit Dye in whatever colors you like,

we're using navy and black

Something to dye, in our case we're using a cotton bag

Buckets,

Gloves,

some salt,

and something to stir with like a stick, or a spoon.

Before you start it's a pretty good idea to make sure that you have your workspace covered,

so we just have a really cheap plastic drop cloth here they're pretty easy to find at the hardware store,

but anything you might have laying around your house is a good idea too,

so a bed sheet, or a canvas drop cloth, or an old rag,

just something to make sure that you're not getting dye everywhere.

You also want to make sure that you have some gloves,

And an old hoodie, or a t-shirt or an apron.
