Kool Aid Dye!

I'm making my little sister bunny slippers from Happy Hooker. I've decided to make it in white, then cool aid dye it pink.

Here's my first cool aid dye experiment, using Cherry flavor, though I think I'm going to use pink lemonade on the actual slippers.

We didn't have white vinegar at home, so I used apple cider vinegar.

I soaked the swatch in water first.

Then I mixed the vinegar and kool aid in a glass, put in the swatch, then microwaved it.

Suddenly the mixture boiled over, and I had to leave the room because of the smell.

I've since read that kool aid is already acidic, and vinegar isn't necessary. oh well
