Here’s a “life-hack” for you.Apparently concentrated Kool-Aid can be used as a pretty effective leather dye.I was making a drink while cutting the snaps off some new straps for my pauldrons and I got curious, so I tried it, thinking, “ok even if this works, it will just wash out.”Nope.It took the “dye” (undiluted) in about 3 seconds. After drying for about an hour and a half, it would not wash off in the hottest tap-water. It would not wash out after soaking for 30 minutes.It did not wash out until I BOILED it, and even then, only by a tiny bit and it gave it a weathered look that was kind of cool.Add some waterproofing and I’d wager it would survive even that.That rich red is only one application too.Plus it smells great, lol.So there you go, cheap, fruity smelling leather dye in all the colors Kool-Aid has to offer.

WELL THEN!

this may be important to some of my followers *and certainly not just getting reblogged because of my costuming and my boyfriends desire for leather armor*

Have you ever needed to match your ribbed knit to your fabric but couldn’t find anything remotely similar?

Have you ever tried to dye your ribbed knit to match your fabric but realized it’s 70% polyester and it’s a pain in the ass?

Did you ever want to cosplay Final Fantasy and were reduced to tears because you couldn’t find chunky ribbed knit?

Don’t worry, you can fake your own.

All you need is a twin needle and two spools of thread, and you can sew your knit fabric to imitate ribbed knit.

When you sew with a twin needle it’ll make a sort of ‘pintuck’, raising the fabric. Leave a small gap between the two rows and it’ll create a pattern. This will work better with lighter knits, the one in the pictures is pretty heavy.

Once again, I set the instructions as captions on the photos.
