First I attempted lemon yellow rit dye. This was a FAIL. The dye didn't take.
Yup I got nothing...
Time to pull out the heavy artillery. I thought iDye dyes polyester--which is plastic-- why not plastic beads??
I also selected some other things also since I didn't want to waste dye. Rope trim and a piece of satin.
Simply add packet to the water.. Yup no spills or worrying about the dye going anywhere else!
Mix well, add beads, etc... mix while on a medium heat
Here's the full removal out of the bath... yay everything took!!
Let the beads dry- they look great
Time to make a necklace! I centered the bigger beads and then flanked the smaller beads at each end.
Went easy with gold beading wire-coated of course- part of my stash.
with the hook & toggle..
I love the heart eye for the necklace. Really cute!
Here is the finished product... way prettier than those dull white beads. A pop of yellow will make for a good add in my wardrobe!
Not done with these but playing around with trying to make earrings with these beads...
Let's see. I am still working on it. I had company come in town and I did absolutely no crafts or sewing! Must play catch up now...
