- A shell or a large container corresponding to the size of the grate;
- Powder dye for fabric;
- Ice cubes;
- Latex gloves.
First of all, the cloth should be thoroughly soaked with water and put on a grate installed over a sink or other available container. The fabric does not need to be spread evenly over the surface of the grate, and even vice versa - it is better to crumple it so that the pattern is not uniform. Do you want to make several pillow cases at the same time? Feel free to dump them into a wet pile! Then the ice is spread over the fabric of the slide and powdered with a dye.
That's all! It remains to wait until the ice completely melts, after which the ready pillowcase for the pillow will have to be thoroughly rinsed in cool water, dried and patted. How do you like the result?
