Sweet Paul Magazine: Dip Dye Ideas

Not only are we on the brink of welcoming a new weekend but we’re also about to be treated to 143 pages of inspiration courtesy of Sweet Paul magazine’s Fall issue as it launches later today. One feature that hit the top of my inspiration Richter scale is this dip dye story. Beautifully styled by Paul himself, the piece guides the reader through a range of different dip dye craft projects for both home and fashion. One of my favourite ideas was to dip dye ribbon as you could make big batches of it in one go and then keep coming back to use it for months ahead, perhaps to wrap a gift, update a vase or decorate votives for a dinner party. Talking of dinner parties, don’t you think that the dip dye table runner holds such a beautiful simplicity? Which of these projects inspires you the most? P.S. Don’t forget to look out for my market pages, a travel story on the Soho district of New York City and a rustic warehouse decorating feature – I’d love to hear your thoughts!

    I love the ribbon idea too! you can practically do it in whatever color you want (or can't find readily available) for the perfect gift wrapping! That vase looks so good with the ribbon!!

    Happy Friday MR!

    Right after seeing this on Sweet Paul Magazine I started to dream about a set of dip dyed bedsheets!

  • Reply virginia September 13, 2012 at 5:15 pm

    I love a bit of dip dye, but can't help thinking that the bed sheets look as if a terrible crime has been committed!

  • Reply Katja March 19, 2013 at 8:21 am

    I really like the bedding, and the table runner! Simple, but yet with that little “extra”. I love the craft feeling too it, still modern look.
