What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just go for it! The greatly thing about dyeing is that you never know for certain what the outcome will be. It is always so thrilling to watch a plan piece of fabric turn into something spectacular. Have fun!

I totally agree with you about the ease and fun of using yogurt cups as dyeing containers. My husband has been saving his for me. The only downside is that I find I can't use any fabric larger than a fat quarter.

For larger pieces, use any container that is about 1/4 of the size of your fabric!! Those disposable plastic bowls work great for this!!

Yes. I'm going to try a larger piece of fabric next. I'm sure it will work just fine. Thank you for the comment Casper1965.
