Who doesn’t love a personally designed Tie Dyed T-Shirt?! Making a Tie Dye Shirt was on my daughter’s wish list for summer activities. So we grabbed a white t-shirt for my 2 youngest and a white pillowcase for my 10 year old.
Our tie dye experience
Let the fun begin!
- Soak the shirts
We soaked the 3 items in a sink of water/soda ash mixture. (It says to use gloves and a mask for safety).
- Use rubberbands
You can make special designs or just randomly band them on the shirt or case.
- Paint them with dye.
The dye will stain the hands if you don’t use gloves. It didn’t stay on very long – only about 24 hours!
- Let them sit in a ziploc bag for 4-24 hours.
Use a sharpie marker to identify the different shirts if they are similar.
- Rinse till the water runs clear
- Wash in a load by themselves
You can buy the die at your local craft store or you can order a kit online from Dharma Trading Company.
