That was gorgeous! If you do it again, I'd love some pictures of the "scrunching" you did to make sure I understand it right. I'd love to try this!

Thanks mama!! I'm going to be doing another one tonight (I think red and orange or pink and orange) so I'll take pics of the process!

80/20 fabric combos usually still take color really well. It's not until about the 60/40 that you start having some issues and even then, it's still nice looking most time.
Very nice dye job!

I bought some Dylon in Caribbean blue and green yesterday to try and reproduce your results! I want to make my DH an OBV pillowcase and these colors would be perfect. I hope it turns out as nice as yours!

Thanks! And that's good info to know... I was kind of wondering how much of a poly blend would significantly change the results. I think most of my fabric should be good for dyeing then..,,.. YAY!
