    Dyeing Fabrics

    Has anyone succesfully dyed fabrics? I have a cream sofa and a two year old, the sofa will be replaced next year but am currently washing the covers at least once a week. Just wondered if dyeing it was an optin or a big No no!
    Thanx in advance for your time.

    HA HA HA HA HA HA ROFL you made me roll up then lou lol nice one ya monkey lol ;-)

    I often do my black jeans when they fade a bit, i buy the dylon black velvet dye from Wilkinsons, and they come out fab. 2 pairs a load in the washer Oh and its 4.95 a box

    I dyed all my sofa covers (dogs and cream covers) and it worked really well but used lots of dye

    I'm sure they will come out looking fab, but you need to use the number or dye's in the instructions (this can be quite a few), the finish also depends on the fabric to be dyed, natural fibres give a much better finish :thumbsup:
