Silke used RIT (in "Evening Blue," "Denim Blue" "Lemon Yellow" and "Purple") for the dip-dyed cups and bowls above. They ran in the May issue of Living last year - perfect for Mother's Day!

Remember this fun summer project? It was brought to us by our friends at RIT, of course. Click here for more of our favorite dyeing projects.
