Don't Drink the Kool-Aid

It's been so long since I've posted!
Here's something I've been working on. It's a soaker sack for an infant that I dip dyed:

I threaded a skewer through the top of the soaker

This is a pot with a packet of grape kool aid, a glug of vinegar, and about 2 inches of warm water. I used a spare needle to get the soaker to stay up, and put the pot on the stove on low. Every so often I unrolled a bit more of the soaker into the water.

And here's the result!

I'm pretty happy with it :)


  1. The soaker looks great! I love the color you got.

  2. This is really gorgeous. I haven't seen that method of dyeing before. Very cool!

  3. Wow, Mandie! So fabulous. I'd wondered how to get a graduated color like that. Definitely the best use of grape kool aid I've seen.

  4. i love the color variants but i am rather puzzled- i 'get' what a soaker is (i think) but what is a soaker sack??
