Day 200: Magical Mystery Dye

Day 201: DIY Shoulder Pad Dryer Sheets
Day 199: Bamboo Dress

When I found today’s dress, I hated the creepy fleshy color of it!  🙁

Day 200:  Magical Mystery Dye 2
Skin-colored! Ewwww....:/

I immediately went to my dye stash and found this little dye packet that had somehow escaped from its box!

Day 200:  Magical Mystery Dye 3
What color are you?!?!?!!!!!

I had NO IDEA what color this little guy might be!  I decided to chance it, and began preparing my mystery dye…

Day 200:  Magical Mystery Dye 4
And the color of the day is ORANGE!!!!

I’ll be honest…I was hoping for something a good deal different from the original color, and this orange hue really wasn’t it.  :/  I went with it anyways!

After the dye bath, I chopped a big chunk off from the bottom.

Day 200:  Magical Mystery Dye 5
Chopped!

I cut a smaller piece from that bottom scrap to wrap around my waist.  Now I have a terrific jersey tunic/dress!   The color is subtly different from the original…a bit more mustardy, don’t you think?

Now I match my walls! 🙂

It’s just the thing for a bad movie night with a few of my favorite fellas!  🙂

Day 200:  Magical Mystery Dye 7
Hi Tony! 🙂

And check this out!  A couple of good friends made us a massive pan of Tex Mex dip…with about a bazillion cheeses in it!  The cheese kind of matches my new tunic…just sayin’!  🙂

Day 200:  Magical Mystery Dye 8
Mmmmmm! Dip! 🙂
Day 200:  Magical Mystery Dye 9
NOM!

And what was our feature film for the evening, you ask?

Day 200:  Magical Mystery Dye 10
...The Legend Continues!

By the way, if any of you have a copy of Boggy Creek I, or the original Boggy Creek II (Yes, this Boggy Creek II is actually Boggy Creek III.  They just decided to call it Boggy Creek II…very complicated, I know!) please let me know!  🙂

Cheers!  🙂

    First off, way to go on this refashion. I really like this one! Secondly, I’ve been obsessively reading your blog posts ever since I saw a pin for it on Pinterest. I went back to the first day of this year long journey and you’ve inspired me to “refashion” things myself! Of course I refashion objects more so than clothes but still! Reusing is reusing regardless of the media. But even that’s not the point. The point is, I was very surprised at the latter part of this post. Why should I be surprised you ask? Well, that would be because I happen to live about 15 minutes from Boggy Creek. THE Boggy Creek. In fact, I went to school in the town where the “Fouke Monster” “resides”. So here I am, scrolling through your blog, expecting your bad movie to be some obscure title that I’ve never heard of, when suddenly I’m confronted with a title I know all too well. Of course, I’ve never seen the sequels. The original was bad enough. Haha anyway, I just wanted to share that with you. Small world, huh?

        Glad I could be of assistance! 🙂 and something else that I’m sure you’ll appreciate: if you ever find yourself in Fouke, AR, be sure to get your picture taken as the Fouke Monster (there’s one of those wooden cutout things that has the opening for you to put your face in) and fill up your car at Monster Mart. The sign outside the gas station is the Fouke monster riding on the back of an Arkansas Razorback, because it’a just that kind of a town. Haha

What do you think?
