Black fabric dye
Something to stir with
Prepare your dye according to the package directions. Add the salt and hot water as directed and stir thoroughly. Add your linens.
Let the linens sit in the dye – the longer the better!
Once your linens are at the desired color squeeze them out and rinse thoroughly per package directions. I hung mine out on the clothes line but you can throw them in the dryer if you want.
Once the linens are dry you can iron them or not. The dye really lets the detailed lace and tatting come through. You can see from this photo that the lace tablecloth I used did not take the dye completely so it looks like a medium gray but I still love it.
Luckily I ran out of dye or I would have dyed everything in sight! Please tag me if you try these dyed linens for Halloween. I would love to see how they come out.
