DIY with fabric dye...

Inspired by Loretta at The Urchin Collective, and having always wanted to try my hand at some fabric dying, here is my first DIY attempt in a while:

White Walnut Sand-shoes - foraged for a measly $8.00 from the local op shop.

Dunked them in the bubbling brew of blue dye...

Attempted to keep the toe of the shoe out of the dye in order to create a tie-dyed effect; but it was a fiddly and hot exercise, so not overly successful...

And voila.

Not the worst first attempt, but certainly some room for improvement!

Might give some pillow cases a try next.
