Default dye military hats?

Anyone tried to dye military hats?

I have a couple pink ones that must have faded in the sun or something... I need to use them for a relay for life fundraiser.

I'm going to try to dye with rit a light pink....(the same color they already are, but hopefully they will cover the "bleached" spots.

All of my tutorials are now available through my etsy store.

Check out my Tutorial Album on Picasa.

What are they made out of? Can you post a picture of them, or of what type of military hat?

I would be concerned that the brim might be reinforced with cardboard and it might not hold up well against being immersed in the water and dye.

Perhaps you could paint it on to achieve a camouflage look?

Good luck.

I'd be interested in seeing how they turn out if you do try dying them.
