Kool-Aid dyeing on cotton

Something I had to try. I know that when dyeing with Kool-aid you are to use wool/silk roving. I had to see why. I used 2 different packages of off Island Fruity Kool-Aid. The pink one was Slammin' Strawberry Kiwi and the green was Ice Blue Raspberry Lemonade. To me this came out great since I thought it would be back to the natural muslin color. When I rinse out the pink hardly any bleeding. But when I rinse the Blue, most of it came out and was left with this very pale green. Both were very colorful in the water..Would love to have had the blue ice. I will try again but with the bolder regular Kool-Aid. I will be dyeing fabrics sometimes tomorrow as tonight I am very exhausted. Haven't been sleeping very well the last few days.
