anyone dyed thread on seats/interior?
 
Ok....let me explain. My new Durango has custom black leather/alcantara seats with blue stitching. So I bought a console lid with white stitching and want to dye it to match the stitching on my seats. Any advice? Is it as simple as buying a royal blue sharpie or perm marker and coloring each stitch? or should I use a dye?

You should be able to mix up some dye and literally paint it on using a very fine brush (pinstriping brush perhaps?)

The only thing I'd be cautious of, is it bleeding.

The sharpie would probably wear off eventually and cause dye transfer too.

I have used food dye before and worked well....brushed on with a small paint brush and rag to clean up mistakes....i used red and came up well

I agree with stone cold paintbrush. Their is a dye section with all the shoe polish forget the name of it three letter word I see the brand in my head just can't think of it It's meant for dying fabrics and their are all kinds of colors.

Awesome! Lets see some pics, fabic dye was the only way to go. The other ways were asking for trouble with transfer when exposed to moisture
