Altering an oppie find

I bought a white crochet cushion for $2 at the op shop a few months ago with the intention of dying it. Here's the pic from my original blog post.


It hasn't taken me THIS long to dye it, but it HAS taken me this long to blog it! I love this colour. And I know it's not the best job of dying you'll ever see, but I love it. Do you want to see?

that looks great, i wish I had a better eye for these things. Maybe not taking 3 children with me would help.
