I want to dip-dye canvas drop cloths to use as curtains. I have no idea what type of dye to use. It needs to hold up to sunlight. I want to use a dark brown so I was looking at the red label dyes. Can I do this in a kiddie pool? In the washing machine? Do I need to soak/wash the canvas before dying?

For cotton fabric you'll want to use the [url="http://www.jacquardproducts.com/products/dyes/procionmx/instructions1.php"]Procion MX[/url] dye with soda ash. Full instructions are [url="http://www.jacquardproducts.com/products/dyes/procionmx/instructions1.php"]here[/url]. Your kiddie pool will work well - and yes you do want to prewash the fabric before dyeing.
