I posted this in yarn crafts as well because I'm just not certain where might be best.
I was gifted a king size cotton bed cover, tightly woven with design in the center and around the edges and short fringes, with a very ugly black-ish stain. It looks like someone put raw cut potatoes on that area.
I'm wondering if I can dye the bed cover to mask the stain. What would you use to dye such a piece? What color would you choose for the color of the stain? My bedroom is all blues so I was thinking a dark navy might be a good choice. How would you accomplish dying it? I was thinking maybe a large plastic storage bin might be large enough to hold the entire bed cover.
Any help or ideas are most appreciated.
If you are doing a solid color I am pretty sure you can dye it in your washing machine with Rit.
If it has poly threading though apperantly it does not take dye so they would stay the same color.
This piece will not fit in my washer, unless I want to burn up the motor and I don't think dh would be very happy with that. lol
I am going to have to use some other method.
Sure would be nice if I could use a natural dye.
