My large family loves thrift store shopping – nothing like finding a practically new or even brand new treasure in a sea of castoffs! The other day, I picked up two Aeropostale hoodies for my twin girls for $1.99 each! Unfortunately, one of them was hot pink – unacceptable, according to my girls!
I personally love hot pink, but I knew my girls wouldn’t wear it. I decided to try doing a hoodie makeover with Tulip Fabric Dye, just to see what would happen!
The directions were pretty straightforward, and I ended up just dyeing it in my kitchen sink. I only did this because my sink is made of a composite material that happens to be black, so I wasn’t worried about the black dye staining my sink. If my sink were any other color, I would’ve used a bucket.
After letting it sit for the recommended time, I washed and dried it. I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out, but I’m pretty pleased with it! Apparently hot pink plus black equals deep plum. I like that the stitching didn’t pick up the dye at all, so there’s a nice contrast.
My girl is happy with her new hoodie! Yay for making things work!
