Sofa turned out well!!

The sofa that used to be an Aubergine colour has turned out quite well.Not quite the dark chocolate I had wanted, but close enough.I could have ordered more dye(new dylon machine dye with no salt needed) and I would think it would have gone darker but to be honest I just wanted it finished(impatient me?) and back on, out of the way.It was a devil to get dry as the weather was so awful!!



I had to use pre dye and that meant it had to be washed at a high temperature and I was really concerned it would shrink as they weren't washable covers.I had decided it was worth a risk and thankfully it has paid off,although they shrunk a little bit it's not noticeable.
