A few weeks ago Noah’s vest, I mean sweater, was officially finished with some sleeves.
It was time to dye it! Noah had been waiting forever (he said) for this part. So we decided to use a couple of blue kool-aid packets as the dye.
It looked quite electric.
Noah immediately wanted to ditch the spoon. Since it was just kool-aid I gave the go ahead and he dove in.
Sadly, it wasn’t the right shade of blue. It was more of a blueish gray.
I also had a regular dye packet in reserve. Noah opted to use it. Since it contained some pretty harsh chemicals I did the second round of dyeing. And boy is it blue now!
It’s a tad big but that hasn’t dampened his enthusiasm. Room to grow, I say.
And while we’re talking about Noah – he made his first bag on the sewing machine! A small drawstring bag for carrying around all those little things: legos, coins, small rocks, marbles etc.
