DIRECTIONS:

DYE PAINTED STRIPED PILLOW – with paint applicator

1. Wet pillowcase in the sink with room temperature water. Ring out excess water. Pre-wetting the fabric helps the dye to take to the fabric.

2. Fold the pillowcase back and forth in an accordion fold. Roll it up into a cylinder and secure with a rubber band.

3. Using the paint applicator in the Rit Color Perfect Kit, paint the entire base of the cylinder covering all the edges of the fabric. The more dye applied, the thicker the stripe.
4. Flip the fabric bundle around and paint the other base of the cylinder.

5. Spray Rit Color Stay Dye Fixative all over the pillowcase. Wrap it in plastic wrap and let sit for 20 minutes. Keeping it in the plastic wrap, heat it in the microwave for 2 minutes, remove and let cool. The Dye Fixative helps fabric retain dye for vibrant color.

TIE-DYE STRIPED PILLOW – with pour applicator

1. Wet pillowcase in the sink with room temperature water. Ring out excess water. Pre-wetting the fabric helps the dye to take to the fabric.

2. Fold the pillowcase back and forth in an accordion fold. Fasten rubber bands around the fabric, spacing them about 1" apart.

3. Using the pour applicator in the Rit Color Perfect Kit, drizzle dye all over the fabric.

4. Spray Rit Color Perfect Dye Fixative all over the pillowcase. Wrap it in plastic wrap and let sit for 20 minutes. Keeping it in the plastic wrap, heat it in the microwave for 2 minutes, remove and let cool. The Dye Fixative helps fabric retain dye for vibrant color.

DYE RESIST STRIPED PILLOW – with spray applicator

1. Lay down painters tape over the pillowcase in the desired pattern. The painters tape acts as a resist, so the areas it covers will remain white. Press firmly to stick the tape to the fabric. Do not wet pillowcase first or the tape will not stick.

2. Using the spray applicator in the Rit Color Perfect Kit, spray the surface of the pillowcase. Allow to absorb into the fabric. This might take longer since it is not already pre-wet.

3. Spray Rit Color Perfect Dye Fixative all over the pillowcase. Wrap it in plastic wrap and let sit for 20 minutes. Then, keeping it in the plastic wrap, heat it in the microwave for 2 minutes, remove and let cool. The Dye Fixative helps fabric retain dye for vibrant color.

Rinse & Finish
1. Remove all three pillowcases from plastic wrap and rinse with cold water in the sink until water runs clear. Add a dollop of detergent and rinse with warm water.
2. Throw the pillowcases into the washing machine. Hang and allow to dry. Place pillowcases over pillows forms.
