THE INSTRUCTIONS

1) Put the fabric dye with a little water in a small bowl. The more water you add, the lighter the color will end up.diy-dip-dyed-ribbons-thesarahjohnson-132) Douse the muslin ribbon in water before rolling it up–this will help the dye absorb. Next place one end in the bowl of dye. Let it sit in the bowl for about 10-20 seconds. Remove from dye and let excess drain off. Flip over and let other side rest in a new bowl of different color dye for another 10-20 seconds.diy-dip-dyed-ribbons-thesarahjohnson-123) Remove second side of ribbon from dye and let excess drain off. Blot any excess on a paper towel. Rest the roll on its side on a paper towel while all the excess drains off for a few minutes.diy-dip-dyed-ribbons-thesarahjohnson-11diy-dip-dyed-ribbons-thesarahjohnson-10

4) Roll the ribbon out flat after excess has drained off. If you hang to dry, the colors may run. Be careful as some dye may still drip off.diy-dip-dyed-ribbons-thesarahjohnson-4

5. Use your ribbon once completely dry.

    I didn’t realize that dip dyed ribbon was so easy. What is “raw” muslin and how does it differ from purchased muslin from a fabric store? I love the look….and since I make my own cards/envelopes and like to gift wrap creatively…this is on my radar now.

    HI BJ, raw muslin is muslin. You could get it from the fabric store and tear it in 1″ strips and achieve the same effect!

    […] These ribbons are amazing for any kind of gift, and they are easy to make! Prepare raw muslin ribbon, food coloring or fabric dye, small bowls for dye, water, paper towels. Put the fabric dye with a little water in a small bowl. The more water you add, the lighter the color will end up. Douse the muslin ribbon in water before rolling it up–this will help the dye absorb. Next place one end in the bowl of dye. Let it sit in the bowl for about 10-20 seconds. Remove from dye and let excess drain off. Flip over and let other side rest in a new bowl of different color dye for another 10-20 seconds. Read what to do next in the source. […]
