    I HIGHLY recommend blocking. Use a littlesoap/shampoo and water in the sink to getout any extra dye in the yarn to prevent itfrom staining your girl. Rinse well and blotwith towel let dry on a white paper towel ornapkin. This will show if there is any moredye bleeding out of garment. If so re-wash

    and rinse well till NO more color comes out.Let dry on white paper towel or napkin.Then add buttons, sequins, otherembellishments Knittygirlie
