Hi Ladies,
 
I went to the fabric store last week looking for Rit Dye to dye the lace of my lf.  I wanted to dye my lace from a light brown which blended very well with my skin to a brown shade. While looking for the Rit Dye I stumbled upon these permanent fabric dyeing pens, called FabricMate. I was skeptical so I purchased the Rit Dye along with the pen. I tried the pen out on a left over piece of lace that  I had, and I must say that it worked pretty well. I just got around to trying the pen on my lf, a few minutes ago and it works very well. I took the pen and lightly colored the inside  and outside perimeter of my cap to see what it looks like and it looks great. The lace blends so well with my skin that it disappers with no adhseive applied. This is a great product, the color is permanent, and you don't have to worry about getting any dye on the knots. Thumbs%20Up You can purchase the fabric dyeing pens at any fabric store, craft store, or online.
 
 
This is the exact pen that I used to dye my lace from a light brown to a brown shade. Wink

I would think that it is way less messy. I have a brand new box of Cocoa Brown Rit Dye that I have not even used. I was scared of messing up my lf, and this was so much easier.
