Default wrinkle ribbon

Hi all
Has anyone seen instructions on making your own "wrinkle ribbon"? I know about using a heat gun, but this is more of a softer, vintage, hand-dyed look.
Thanks
Mary Ellen

The ribbon is actually rayon seam binding. You can get it already colored or dye it yourself with reinkers and water in a mini mister. You just mist it, scrunch it up and pop it in the microwave for 90 seconds... stopping every 30 seconds to un-scrunch it and re-scrunch to make sure the center dries.

I got 100 yard rolls of white seam binding on eBay for $8.95.

I just want to re-state: you MUST use rayon seam binding for this project. The binding you can buy in JoAnns in the 3 yard packages is polyester and won't take the dye or crinkle as well.

I hesitate to use reinkers or even the sprays for this, as the dye will not be fixed, and could come off on your papers, hands, other ribbons stored nearby, etc. at some point down the road. I guess that's me talking as a dyer of fabrics and yarns from way back. Maybe that's not as important to others, though.

Personally, I've had great results with vintage (rayon) colored binding using a discharge dye method. No worries about colorfastness then, but the results are not at all predictable. That's part of the fun to me.

I posted my "experiment" today. You can see the ways I tried to color my Hug Snug (seam binding) and what I liked best with lots of photos. You can see my post here. I hope it is helpful.

Okay, at the risk of sounding stupid, why would you want to wrinkle the stuff? I iron my ribbon!

LOL! Because it looks gorgeous. It's not thick or stiff like ribbon so you really get a different look. Here is a gorgeous card posted by my friend. She just dyed some with tea the other day, and made a gorgeous card with it but I see she hasn't put it up in her gallery yet. But you can see what she did with some of the wrinkled/dyed seam binding on the link I posted. Fun, huh?

Okay so I took Patter's idea one step further and mixed water, dye ink AND Glimmer Mist in a Mini Mister. I used Rose Red ink refill and Iridescent Gold Glimmer mist and some water. The seam binding turned out great! I will be making some more today! Love this stuff!!

Yes, isn't it fun? I did the dye ink with water in my mini mister and then spritzed with Glimmer Mist because I wasn't sure what colors I wanted. Now that I have played, I may mix them all 3 together. I am thinking of doing dye ink, water, and perfect pearls too! Fun, fun!

I tried to find the seam binding at my local sewing shop, but all they had was the cotton variety. Will keep looking!

I love the look of the dyed and crinkled seam binding, I bought a roll a while back but didn't really know how to dye it so it has just been sitting here all this time. I am so glad I found this wonderful thread. Thank you all for the great info!

I ordered mine from e.bay for 7.95 plus 3.95 shipping...its called Hug Snug and is 100% rayon which lets it absorb the dye. It looks better to spritz it so that it is not one solid color. Also after you spritz it wad it in a ball and put it in a baggie way in the corner and twist it...then let dry overnight. It turns out really good. If it isn't quite dry leave it out on table for an hour or so and it will dry nicely. I like buying the white rather than the colored and dying my own. That way you can have lots of colors. I think you'll like the way it looks on cards.

I bought my rayon seam binding (enabled from a thread like this) a couple of months ago, I just got around to coloring it this morning, hung it to dry and forgot about it till I read this thread. It is dry!! Now to make something cool with it.

Thanks for that tutorial, Ilina. Your video is great! Funny, I was just wondering if the spray would stain you hands much, lol. Thanks for the tip on wearing rubber gloves

Wow- you bring up a really great point about dye possibly being transferred to places you do not want it. But what exactly do you mean by "a discharge dye method"? Pardon me for my ignorance, lol! All this dyeing stuff is new to me!

Discharge dyeing is basically removing color rather than adding it. Basically, if you take a dark chocolate rayon ribbon and remove the color while it's bunched, you'll end up with variations from tan to cocoa to the original chocolate.

When I say you may get unexpected results--some dyes are made up of unexpected component colors. One navy ribbon may lighten to various shades of blue, where another navy ribbon may reveal mauve tones. I've had some greens lighten to yellows or browns. Black is the most unpredictable, as different dyle lots are often made up of many different component colors.

Could you just use Vinegar to set the color? Just wondering ....

I have never had any problem with the color coming off the ribbon...if you get too involved coloring it you would be better off buying it already colored. Michelle
Wooderson (Mish Mash) has a wide variety of colors on her site and on Etsy at a reasonable price. Don't add unnecessary stress to your life..enjoy it.

That would work if you're using a fiber reactive dye. For reinkers or spritzes, I don't really know--it may just totally wash off the color.

Can someone let me know what "white" they like to start with? I was on the Zipperstop website and they have a bunch of different shades of white. Does anyone feel one is better as a base than others? Some are more cool and some warmer whites and even ivories. Perhaps it won't matter but just wondering. Thanks!

Awesome question, thanks for asking it! Okay ladies- any opinions on this?
I just bought some in eggshell. I will let you know how I like it after I try dying it.

I have both the eggshell and off-white, and there is absolutely no difference after dying. Really before dying they look similar. LOL!

Also, I shared how I store my dyed seam binding and how I keep track of my favorite "color combos or recipes" in my new post today you can find here.

Thank you Patter! I just read your post as I am subscribed to your blog which made me remember I had asked this question and then lo and behold, I got an email showing a new post to this thread. Thanks for letting us know. I have some "cream" color seam binding which is much more of a very pale cool yellow tone and I'm not thrilled with it on its own. This roll will be dedicated to dying.

And of course, I love your storage and swatch ideas on your blog. I switched to your ribbon storage method about a year ago and love it!

TFS!
