Materials (from Michael’s & Paper Presentation):

  • Tote bag
  • Permanent fabric dye in yellow and orange
  • Plastic bowl/bucket, spoon, and hot water (for dye bath)

  • Remove the bag and allow the excess water and dye to drip out into the dye bowl (or an old towel) as it dries
  • Following the instructions on the dye package again, prepare the orange dye and submerge the bottom third of your tote in the dye for another 45 minutes
  • To rinse, put the tote under a faucet with the water in a constant downward flow. Do not “scrunch” the fabric or allow the dyed portion to come into contact with the un-dyed portion. Hang over an old towel to dry
