Colored Drawstring Bag

Is your dad keep losing small things like his earphones or keychains? Give him these Dip-Dyed Bags to make sure it won’t happen again.

These bags are handy and extremely stylish. And with them, your dad will always know where to find his small items (also think of you in the process). 

Ingredients for the Dip Dyed Bag

Here is what you need:

  • Muslin drawstring bags (any size you like)
  • RIT liquid dye
  • Salt (if needed)
  • Paper towels
  • Small disposable plastic cups
  • Plastic gloves
  • Bake sheet and dry rack

Let’s get your hand into making these stylish dip-dyed bags:

 

  • Step 1:
    Fill half of your cup with hot water (if you want more colors, use more cups).
    Then add in 2 tablespoons of dye with 2 tablespoons salt to the water and mix them thoroughly.
    (Only if it is required for the dye should you add the salt)

Step 1

 

 

  • Step 2:
    Carefully dip a muslin bag into the dye.
    It would take about 3-4 minutes for the bags to pick up the colors.
    So try to keep them in place.
    Repeat the process with all the bags you plan to make

Step 2

 

 

  • Step 3:
    Once you get your desired shade of color for all of your bags, it’s drying time.
    Set some paper towels or newspapers on a flat surface (this will prevent a mess to be made).
    Place a cooling rack on top of the paper towels. And start drying the bags. (Allow to dry completely).

Step 3

And voila, now go give this to your dad so he can begin keeping his stuff in place.
