Fill your machine with enough water to cover the article completely.
Use the hottest allowable temperature  for your fabric.
Completely wet your clothes in the hottest allowable water.
Add 1 cup of salt to the water
Add your dye and agitate to mix.
Add your unfolded, unbunched clothing
Mix your clothing into the dye bath.
Let your clothing soak for half an hour, agitating throughout.
After 30 minutes, the water should darken to the proper shade.
Run the clothing through a normal wash cycle.
Thoroughly rinse the article of clothing
Wash the article as usual
Finished product. 
This is not nearly as dark as I’d hope it would turn out so I bought a new black dye to retry it.
Repeated the entire process again.
Still not the color I want. Giving up.
NOTE!: Once you finish dying your clothes, immediately run your washing machine, completely empty,through a normal wash cycle adding 1 cup of bleach to clean out any left over color residue.
What I Learned:
For some reason every time I dye a piece of clothing it turns out purple. So weird.
Anyways, I don’t think dying my own clothes is worth the time or money. 
This whole process takes forever and the finished product looks old and worn out. The color is faded and didn’t end up as dark as I had hoped. I rinsed this coat about 5 times after each time because color would keep bleeding out.
Uneven color 
Purple color despite Navy dye and Black dye
Time consuming
Old, faded look afterwards
Constant rinsing
I think to get a dark navy color, I’d have to dye this jacket at least two more times and I just don’t think it’s worth it.
Have you ever dyed something at home? Did it work for you? What were your tricks?

1 / Arrange and store your clothing by color. This makes it easier to find certain items
2 / Use an old bookcase in your closet to store your shoes, freeing up floor space for taller items like boots
3 / Use a shoe organizer on your closet door to hold smaller shoes like flats and flip flops
4 / Use glass jars to separate your make up brushes by face brush vs. eye brush [both these jars were thrifted]
5 / Use clear plastic containers with drawers to organize small items like hair things and makeup. Using clear drawers makes it easier to see what’s in each drawer.
6 / Use a small file folder organizer to hold your makeup palettes [found in office supply at walmart]
7 / Use a craft/bead storage box to hold small items like bobby pins, elastics, and hair clips.
What do you use to stay organized?

I’ve always enjoyed the Autumn season when the weather cools off and leaves cover the roads. Decorating for the occasion can be a lot of fun but expensive at the same time. I recently found this candle in a cupboard I was cleaning and didn’t want to leave it collecting dust, hidden away on a top shelf.  I rummaged around and found an old glass vase, some expired popcorn kernels and some twine from a previous project to use for an easy and relatively inexpensive way to decorate my tabletop in commemoration of Fall.
