How much was your white foe when you bought that many yards?

I think the one on the right is hot pink...it's been a LONG time since I bought it. The one I dyed was with Fuschia Rit.

I'm talking to a manufacturer about having some produced for about $.15 per yard...the hard part is the minimum order is 20 , 144 yard spools.

I'll post here along w/ the other thread once I get samples and decide if I'm going to go ahead w the order.

I'm thinking what I would do is order the white in bulk, and cut them to size for adjustable headbands (and heat seal them), then dye 20 or so at a time... (I use a pickle jar and Rit) then as I need them I would just dye more...

It would only probably take 1/4 package of Rit (or less)...so as long as I stocked some dye, it would give me really good control of my inventory... Tons of White, and just a handful of other colors, I would never have to worry about running out as long as I kept my white in stock.

I'm also trying to see where the best place to buy RIT at cheaper prices is...

after dying the foe do I have to wash or rinse it out or just dry it?

I am going to try this too.. I buy the RIT liquid at JA with my coupon.

I found a website last night that said you can dye buttons. I am going to throw some buttons in after I get done with the elastics.

I have dyed foe before! It was for personal use though! I had dyed foe with rit dye to match my daughters pageant dress (she didn't have enough hair to really clip her bow in so I made a foe band) it turned out good! Just make sure your using the right amount of dye! I didn't use enough my first time and it turned this vintage blue jean color, and the 2nd time I. Added to much and it turned black lol...the 3rd time I got it just right and it was royal blue! hth!
