It just so happens that I dyed dresses and other oddities purple on Good Friday. Earlier we had taken part in a Pro-Life Stations of the Cross through the city near us. Just the other day I finished painting them. This is a good paint called Jacquard textile paints that is set with an iron. The paint and the two older girls' dresses I purchased from Dharma Trading Company. You can find them on the internet. Kids can even help though I am not ready for that yet. Perhaps in a few years!!
