Dyed denim jacket tutorial

Hey y’all!  It’s Alida again from Alida Makes, with another denim tutorial.  Last time I shared how to bleach and stud a jacket, this time I’m taking it a step further and dying the bleached jacket.  Here was my Pinspiration:

And here is my creation:

I wanted it blotchy and not too “perfect” and this technique definitely produces those results!

First, follow last time’s tutorial on bleaching your jacket.  Then:

Pro Tip:  Only dye in a stainless steel sink (like a kitchen sink) NOT porcelain, it will stain.  If you don’t have a stainless steel sink you can use a rubbermaid tub.

Pro Tip:  Don’t wash with anything that you don’t want to turn pink!

I also made a heart with studs on the back, because ya know, I can’t leave well enough alone.  Good thing she loves it :-)
