Dip-Dyed Keds

A quick and easy project, a chance to play with Rit Dye, and new ombre summer kicks for my youngest daughter 🙂

I followed the directions here, used color Aquamarine, and dipped them in Rit Fixative before tossing them into the washing machine.  I wish that I’d been able to keep them whiter toward the back of the shoes, but when I dipped the toes, the front toe wells filled up with liquid, and there was no way to pour it out without getting at least a little dripped over the backs.  Next time, if I wanted to keep a portion entirely white, I’d coat it with Vaseline ahead of time (like I did the rubber edging and soles).

It’s sure a fun way to create one-of-a-kind tennies in custom colors!
