egg dye ribbons

i had seen in one of my magazines that you could use egg dye to dye ribbons. so yesterday i experimented with some. i used white seam binding( i was lucky to find a roll at a thrift store awhile back). so all i did was use two colors pink and green. i folded up the seam binding and used rubber bands to wrap around the little tie dying. then i dipped them in the dyes. the yellow was supposed to be green..
so then after that i tried food coloring in red and blue. the food coloring didn't give a very deep coloring. maybe i needed more drops. but these came out pretty. i'll do more soon and take pics of the process. now i can use these for crafts, gift wrapping etc...
