Dyeing with Chalk Paint®

Kelli and I have been experimenting a lot with our Annie Sloan Chalk Paint ®. She had heard about people dyeing fabric with it so we tried it out the other day to see for ourselves. It really works and it looks amazing!! We ended up dyeing slips, dresses, doilies, and any other blank canvas we could find. All you need to do is fill a bucket with water and mix in your desired amount of paint. Mix it up real good then dip in your fabric. We let our things soak in the water for about 15-20 minutes and then hung them outside to dry. The items were washed and dried that night and they still look fabulous! Its such a fun little project and all you really need is a sample pot of you favorite color!
