Start by preparing the dye baths, one for each color. Place the Tea Stain Dye bag in the container and add hot water to it and let it steep just like tea for about 5 minutes. Be careful to not burn yourself.

Place 100% cotton fabric squares into the dye baths. Leave it in longer for more saturated colors. Carefully remove and let the fabric dry.
