DIY Dip Dye Ombre Apron

A few months ago, I found this gorgeous apron at the thrift store.  A friend of mine had just moved out by herself so I thought it would be fun to get it for her as a gift, and then customize it a little bit.  I decided to do an ombre dip dye to modernize it a little.  I will share the instructions below.  And, I also was able to dye this shirt, also thrifted.

Supplies:
Powder Dye. I used a pink Rit dye, you can find a similar one here.
An apron, or something to dye (similar)

Instructions:
Follow the instructions on the box to prepare your dye.  I mixed it with water in my sink, mostly because of the available counter space beside it where I could place my apron.

Put most of the apron into the sink, leaving out the parts you don’t want to dye.

Wait 5-10 minutes, depending on how dark you would like it, and move it a little bit out of the dye.

Keep doing that, 5-10 minutes at a time, until you have dyed your entire apron.

Once finished, rinse it all out with cold water and then put it through the laundry on cold by itself a few times.  After that, you’ll be good to go!

And that is how they turned out! 🙂
