The first thing you should do is set up your dipping station with three buckets or containers; One with the dye (according to the package instructions), one with water, and one with vinegar and water mixed. Now, fold the scarf accordion style, you can see my folds were a few inches or so which is pretty typical but feel free to change it up. Once the scarf is folded, pin these together with clothespins. Dip half of the scarf into the dye and get it fairly covered before holding it above the container to drip. Next dip the same scarf in the vinegar mix, and pin the scarf (still folded) to a clothespin or somewhere outside so that it can dry/ drip freely. Note: Do this project outside, don’t do this in your tub like me, it can get a little messy and even a little mess leads to a purple tub…. I let my scarf dry for 48 hours, and it was still wet (because it’s been freezing outside) so I then undid the clothespins and let it dry fully for another 24 hours. After this, I LOVED the way it looked, and then I soaked it in some more vinegar water to make sure I set the color (this faded the color a little) and then put it in the wash with baking soda and water for 1 load, then 1 normal load (by itself) with detergent and cold water.
