As you might remember from The Dye Disaster (Part I), the petals ended up being a lavender color instead of navy. I assumed that this was because the washing machine diluted the dye too much.
I decided to try again using the stovetop method. Basically, you dye the fabric in a pot on the stovetop. It's much stronger because there is less water. Or I thought...

Yep. Still purple. A darker purple, but still purple. Gah! I swear I bought navy dye! It's just not wanting to dye these darn petals blue. I don't know what to do. I think I'm just giving up on the dying of the petals. It's obviously just not meant to be. :P
