Hippie Tie Dye Adventure

Standard

Mister and I have been itching to try out tie dying some clothing, and for it being the first time for both of us, I think it turned out nicely. After about ten minutes of watching youtube videos for instructions on how to tie dye and a quick trip to a dollar store for the rubber bands I forgot, we felt totally prepared to get our tie dye on.

Here’s Mister demonstrating the most important thing to remember while tie dying – always wear gloves!

We did three shirts total…a tshirt for each of us and then I also wanted a tank top. The tshirts were done in a spiral pattern, and the tank top I just twisted and made a few random banded areas.

Our first color going on…we wanted to do two colors – yellow & black – for his fraternity (which I’m a lil sis to).

Two colors! Here you can see the difference in how we spiraled ours. He colored each section of the wheel differently while I grouped my sections by twos (which made his have multiple spirals and mine have a larger one).

The final product after the first rinse! (Will definitely let them dry longer next time since we put them in the washer right after this picture and a lot of the color faded)

Finished tank top! Obviously we spent the time in the pool waiting for the shirts to dry some.

Looking forward to tie dying again real soon…and this time having the patience to wait for them to dry longer.
