I don't plan on buying any newborn clothing besides some shirts. I have about 7 pair of newborn baby legs already so diaper, baby legs, socks and a shirt and we're good.

Nope. But we are doing rainbows and hippos as the theme, so I am getting anything rainbow inspired I can. I want to get some of those white side snap shirts and have them dyed in bright, vibrant colors, but idk how to dye clothing :lol:

Get a tie dye kit from Walmart/craft store. They are usually less than $20 and you can't really mess it up. :) I plan to tie dye some prefolds and onesies soon and I suck haha

I want a few tie dye, but most I just want solid colors. I'd buy them in solid colors if I could find them lol. So far all I can find are in white.

Oh and speaking of, I'll update you guys in the most recent "news" as some of you have been messaging me from time to time and thank you guys for that. I was in the hospital, yet again, Friday night for another episode of bleeding. I have placenta previa, it's partial though. So, apparently this pregnancy is destined to leave me with a complete head full of grey hair.

Ahhhh, then same concept but there are packets of colors... RIT dye has some as well as another brand but I can't remember the name off the top of my head... Tulip I think is one... they'd be in any craft section though. You can get nice bright colors with those.

Yup. If you have a stainless steel sink, you can dye it in there. Follow the directions on the packet, its not hard. It just needs x amount of salt. I can't remember exactly 'cause I haven't used them for clothes in a long time, only for wool roving.

This makes it sound like a lot of exacts but really.... mix the dye in hot water first so it all dissolves, dilute in hot water with x amount of salt, let that shit soak a while (make sure it's prewashed and dried like a cloth diaper so there's no residue), rinse until the water is clear, dry as normal. You're good to go.

No problem. Google could probably bring up some tutorials that are better worded than me lol.



RIT dye is usually sold in the laundry section of walmart. There's other fabric dyes in the craft section though that has brighter colors. It's called Tulip, it's in little baggies and has lovely bright colors. http://www.ilovetocreate.com/Howtousedetail.aspx?useid=1d44796f-06f2-465a-969c-0cf7287e0454



Seems to have a lot of bad reviews though... I can't remember what I used it to dye so I can't remember if it turned out well or not. x-x May want to stick to RIT though. You can order more colors online than what walmart carries or use the color combination guide on the website to get what you want.

So true! And I have a few small pieces of uncommon prints I found on evay when some fabric store in the UK went out of business. They put a bunch of diaper cuts up for sale.

That's the way I look at it too. Since I have a full-time job I prefer spending my time off with them while they're awake. I try to fit in other stuff while they are in bed, assuming I'm not too tired already and go to bed as well.

Robbie won't let me put baby legs on the boys either. It should be fine at least around the house I'd think. Maybe I can now that we're having a girl, but I doubt it. He's weird that way. He said it was "too 80's" and he didn't like it.
