Hi all,<br><br>
My DD has just moved up a size and I bought a whole bunch of premium sized prefolds. I have been looking at the pretty color prefolds online and want to see if I can dye them.<br><br>
Any expert dyer's out there? How do you go about it and what would I need to get? Any input appreciated! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I personally won't do it. I am not comfortable with DD wetting herself on dyed cotton and that being next to her skin for any length of time. But check out this forum...<br><br><a href="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/forumdisplay.php?f=319" target="_blank">http://www.mothering.com/discussions...play.php?f=319</a>

I dye and sell them. I use procion dyes (you can read about the process on the dharma trading site), which don't bleed or fade.

I just dyed a bunch using Dylon that you can buy at Joanns or Walmart. I saw a tutorial over at Diaperswappers and its super easy. I dye either in my ss sink or in a plastic bucket. I love how they turned out!

I really want to dye mine this summer too. I'd love to read more about this.
