Dip-Dye Duvet Cover

Fold duvet until it's the width of the plastic container (Image 1). The center of the duvet should be the folded side. Dip folded side of the duvet cover into the dye bath. Immerse the duvet cover halfway into dye bath (Image 2). Let the remaining fabric drape over the side of the container (Image 3).

Dip-Dye Pillowcases

Fold a soaking-wet pillowcase in half. Dip folded side of each pillowcase into dye bath. Drape pillowcase over the side of the container, leaving half in the dye (Image 1). Let fabric sit in the dye for a few hours. The longer it sits, the darker the color will be. After a few hours, take fabric out of the dye bath (Image 2).

Let Dry

Unfold pillowcases and duvet cover (Images 1-2). Hang duvet cover and pillowcases outside to dry (Image 3).
