- Time:few hours + setting time
1Wash tote bag and leave damp. Lay out on work surface covered with plastic table cover. Fold bag in half lengthwise and smooth out any creases. Draw a half heart shape along fold with washable fabric marker. Starting at bottom of heart, pleat along marker line, drawing fabric into a straight line as you go, so that marker line forms a straight line along the tops of pleats. Secure along this line with a rubber band. Secure a second rubber band approximately 1/2" outside first rubber band.
2Mix dye according to package instructions. Put paper towels under bag, apply purple dye to tied heart center section of bag.
3Dilute remaining dye by pouring out about half and adding water to get lighter shade of purple. Apply remaining dye to body of bag except for the middle banded section. Leave middle section white. Cover with plastic and let set 6-8 hours. Rinse fabric in warm water until water runs clear.
4Fill washer to large load setting with hottest water suitable for fabric and a small amount of non-bleach laundry detergent. Wash and dry separately for the first few washes.
