No, today is not any official Tie Dye Day. But it can be in your home. Get ready for artistic fun!
Do you remember tie-dying as a kid? I remember buckets of dye, rubberbanding shirts, strategically dipping and dunking in various colors of dye . . . and I remember it taking hours. Not any longer. I picked up a box of Tulip One-Step Tie-Dye Kit. And wow, did it make things easy, especially for young kids. Not to mention, it was a blast!
The How To:
* Start with wet shirts. I threw mine in the rinse cycle of the washer.
|Making a Spiral Pattern with Tie Dye|
* Rubberband the shirts in various patterns. The instruction pamphlet came with several ideas. I loved the spiral and simple squished one.
* You are supposed to leave them wrapped for 4-6 hours before washing them in hot water. I would suggest letting them sit over night. Ours did fade.
