Simply Dyeing for Dolls
© 2000 Bobbi A. Chukran

 by Bobbi A. Chukran

Have you ever had a doll that clamored for blue buttons on her bloomers, or a bear that cried out for a yellow feather in his hat?  No more frantic searches through the fabric stores!  With this class you can learn how to dye your own fabrics, laces, doll hair, sequins, feathers, boas, buttons and beads using common grocery-store RitTM dyes and a few common household items that can be found anywhere.

And as a Bonus the class will make a doll using all of the dyed items.

Dyeing is inexpensive and easy!  The whole process involves only three basic steps!

Who Should Join this class??

Although the class will primarily help dollmakers, others can also learn how-to-dye by following these easy instructions.  Bearmakers (and other stuffed animal makers), doll costumers, people costumers, fashion doll makeover artists, etc.  will all benefit from the information given in this course.
