    I've been naughty in the past and used a waterproof pen! I made a bag and couldn't get the tension right, so the bottom colour tread showed through the top material. Really annoying! It was black material so I just coloured it in. (It was mybag, I wasn't selling it!)

    Nope, I don't think so. Nothing will work, AFAIK... sorry!

    Call it a design feature?

    How can I dye the Nylon stitching on cotton trousers?

    Hi all

    I've just dyed some cotton trousers using Dylon Machine Dye and they've come out really well, except the stitching. I'm assuming the stitching is Nylon so it hasn't taken. Does anyone know how I can colour the stitching to match the fabric? Would cold water hand dye work?
    Thankyou!
