Live and Let Dye

Oh, I know. Bad pun. But, I can't help myself. It's a sickness. It really is.

Anyways, I just thought I'd post a little solution I tried to fix all of the stained tshirts and tops my girls have. I love buying them little white shirts. The only problem is, they don't stay white for long.

Take this shirt for example:

I loved it 'cause it was so girly and sweet. But, Kai apparently loved to color with permanent markers in it. I hated to throw it out and it was too stained with Sharpies to let her wear it, so enter one package of Black Rit dye and ta-da! A gothic looking lace top:

I actually like it even better now. The lace took the dye differently but I like the way it looks. And since we have a touch of the Adams Family in us and love to wear black alot, it fits into her wardrobe perfectly! Now I can't wait to go buy a ton of RIT dye and try out all different colors.

I may even try dying my shirts, too...
