Tie Dye Fail

So, you remember that giveaway I did last week? Well, the winner asked for a dress dyed purple! But for some reason, the cotton that I used was too thin, and the whole dress turned purple. Not dyed, just purple.
So I tried to dye it again, thinking that something was wrong with me. It turned a deeper shade of purple. And the lace turned a different color. Yay? So not what I wanted to happen...

Then I did what every artist probably does in moments like this: I pouted. And whined. And ate hummus. Then I played a video game for four hours. In my underwear.

After my tantrum, I feel better and am going to tackle the dress again! *I really hope it works this time* I think it was the thinness of the cotton, but I don't know. (Any ideas, you guys??)

Oh, and this weeks winner is Kathleen! I've already e-mailed you, Kathleen, and I can't wait to create a dress for you! I'm going to use thick cotton so there are no more tie dye mistakes. Well, my husband told me the purple color is really pretty, so I will probably sale these in my shop, since they are fine. Just not tie dyed.

For this week, I'm going to do something different for the giveaway. To enter, leave an encouraging comment below this post, and on Monday the 20th (yes, only one day) I'll pick a winner randomly! Please leave your e-mail too :)

I actually prefer solid colors to tie dye, so it doesn't look like a fail to me! (But that's 'cause I'm biased.)

I too think it's really pretty! But I love purple. You inspire me with all your creativity. Maybe someday I'll adventure out and learn to sew and craft like you! :)

I think the solid purple is really pretty! I like that the lace is a different color.
