The Palmetto Sta...
Ok. This is the update for The Choker. I couldn’t get the grape juice out of the sleeves. I went to the fabric shop to get a recommended fabric dye. One of the workers recommended to use Grandma’s Secret Spot Remover because she said it removed Curry from her blouse – no luck!
Now, I went to WM and bought a pack of Rit Dye, Purple. I wanted a dark and vibrant purple. I followed the directions that was for a 1 lb of fabric. Of course the top is NOT 1 lb, so I thought I would most definately have a deep purple. NOT! I got this.
The last two pictures are 1. What it’s spposed to look like. 2. What it ended up looking like…the first time.
PS I did the zig zag around the whole collar and it stayed under. Yay. I don’t know if I am going to keep the top or let it be my sister’s B-day gift. She likes any shade of purple…..maybe that was meant to be.
Oh yeah, overlook the bad hair day.
