My usual carefully executed technique: small pieces of fabric, with some skeins of thread, into plastic bags with a few tablespoons of diluted dye, wait a bit and see what happens. I rinse and dry the plastic bags afterwards; you can reuse them many times if you get the strong resealable freezer-type ones.

But (probably) the best thing about dyeing small pieces of fabric, especially bits that have been cut from old clothes where the cut is along the bias, is the delightful edges that emerge from the washing machine after the final rinse:
Enjoy the colours – and the edges – of your weekend.
