Dip Dye Hijab

I made this dip dyed scarf in three shades of blue gray using Rit dye in blue and black. The whole process took less than an hour and clean up was easy.

For this project, you’ll need:
-1 or 2 packets of Rit dye (or any other kind of dye), I needed two packets because I was mixing colors until I got the shade of blue gray I liked.
-a bucket
-something to mix your dye and scarf (I used a popsicle stick and a twig!)

Mix dye mixture to the level you like in a bucket large enough to hold the fabric you want to dye with enough room for it to swirl around. I used hot water for the initial dye. Dip your fabric in and let the dye penetrate all parts of the fabric. Let it sit for several minutes to several hours to suit your needs. Once you’ve achieved the desired color, add water (and if necessary remove some of the original dye mixture) until the solution is lighter. Continue to lower your fabric into the dye mixture and let it saturate the fabric. Let it sit for as long as you need to really absorb the color. Once again, add water to dilute the mixture further and submerge all the fabric. Let it sit for about 10 minutes before removing. Water thoroughly and let it dry. Ironing helps set the color.
