Use Paas Color Snaps (for easter egg decoration) to dye small bits of fabric. I bought a bunch of these on sale a couple of years ago and never knew what to do with them. I started making muslin rosebuds and wanted an easier way to make a colored edge. I had been laboriously painting the edge after the bud was assembled. I came across the color snaps and they were great! It's super concentrated dye that you swap on with the q-tip end. There's only a little dye in each one, but they're good for a small strip of fabric or bits of lace. They also blend well.
