Easter Egg Dye

I tryed dying silk and cotton lace and ribbon with Easter Egg Dye! I mixed the Easter Egg Dye with lemon juice. I bought some cheap cotton lace and left it in the dye for about 20 minutes. Initially the dye was quite bright, but when I rinsed it later in cold water it did fade some as seen on these pics.

Then I put the silk ribbon in. I used 2 different kinds of ribbon. The long one in the pic is YLI ribbon. The other ribbon (Pink) came out very wrinkled and never did really iron out straight. The dye is very evenly dispersed- not exactly what I wanted, but it is nice just the same.
