Well, the second bottle of dye helped even things out, but not by much. Weird how the dye seams to sink in.... then evaporate right out when I turn my back. It's almost like the suede texture is acting like a million little wicks to draw the dye out of the leather so it can waft away in the breeze! I've got it stuck in a trash bag now. Hopefully, that'll slow down the drying/evaporating of the dye and help it migrate a bit into the leather. If that doesn't work.... ugh. ETA: Looking around at dye stuff, I noticed that Fieblings and others offer dyes specifically for suede. The bottles I got from Hobby Lobby don't make any mention of suede, but you'd think that leather dye would dye leather. Maybe, just maybe, there's something about suede that you need a specific kind of dye for it, and that's why the companies specifically label some dyes as "suede and roughout" dyes. Since it appears I'll need a third frickin' bottle of dye to darken this apron and get it looking less mottled, I'll have to shop on line to find some suede dye. Better safe than sorry!
