Questions about dyeing fabric
Okay ~ I volunteered to help sew costumes and to keep the costs down, we are using donated sheets for the fabric. All the sheets are white so I am going to have to dye them before cutting the patterns out.

Has anyone dyed fabric using Rit dye before? How easy is it to do? My biggest concern is trying to do the machine method and dyeing my washer (which isn't mine). Since I'm having to dye the sheets -- royal blue, tan, and dark brown -- don't want the white washer to get dyed. Thought about doing it in a plastic bin, but the thought of ringing all of those sheets out doesn't appeal.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!
