Tutorial: Use Kool-Aid to dye nylon power mesh

Debbie from Squiggly Twigs Designs needed some brightly colored power mesh to replicate the look of a super cute twirly skirt.  She could have used tulle, but the power mesh is softer and had a better drape.  The only problem was that she could only buy it locally in two colors – white or black.  She got the white mesh and then dyed it to the color she wanted  using Kool-Aid. Brilliant!! And thrifty, too!  She wrote up a tutorial telling how she did it.  Get the tute.
