I kept looking for a tutorial for kool aid lace dyeing,but I couldn't find any, so I decided to make my own.

Step 1: Cut your lace

Cut you lace to the desired length you want,unless you want it all the same color. I am going to make a baby headband with my lace so I cut mine to 14 inches.
<p>this is an awesome idea! i have been searching high and low for a safe way to dye nylon lace on a vintage wedding dress. now i know exactly what i'll do!!</p>
I can't help but wonder that the lace gets scratchy from the sugar particles, like hair does when you dye that with kool-aid. Is it crunchy at all?
<p>you actually have to add sugar to the kool-aid when making it to drink, so i doubt it would have a sticky scratchy effect if you just used the packet to dye..</p>
No, it's not crunchy or scatching at all. Of cource I started out with really soft strechy lace. Besides I don't use sugar in the kool aid so that probably helps too.
How long does the dye survive after washing?
I have washed kool-aid dyed stuff before and some does was out but not much. You can always heat set the color in the microwave and it becomes a little more color fast. Just think of how hard it is to get kool-aid stains out of clothing it is the same with stuff you dye using koolaid.
I've never actually washed it, so I don't know if the dye will wash out or not. I don't think it would wash out, considering kool aid stains really back. I wouldn't wash it in a machine though,I would stick with handwashing.
Very cute! It holds the color well!
