Would you believe that I have never tie dyed before?
Raise your hand if you have NEVER tie dyed before...I see some hands!
Tulip tie dye is great! It's one step process makes it so easy to use!
Dyes are permanent and color-fast...so they wont fade in the wash!
This was my first go at it...and you know what? I love it and I am completely obsessed.
Just watch out...anything and everything that is white is soon to be tie dyed!
Tie dying is a fun family activity!
Great for all ages too. Some set up in advance, and even the
littlest toddler could make their own shirt!
Step 1: Supplies!
You will need:
White 100% cotton T-shirts
One step Tie Dye (and warm water)
Rubber bands and zip ties
Plastic bag covered table (on the patio was great)
Plastic bags (grocery type bags)
And some eager helpers!
I had enough dye rated for "65 projects". (they are counting small projects like socks or bandanas...)
Because we did large child and large adult shirts it ended up making 40 shirts total.
(hopefully this helps when you are planning ahead for your party!)
I wrapped the table with garbage bags, so the clean up would be easy.
I had a basket of already washed and wet t-shirts.
We used baking racks to keep the dye from pooling under the shirts...
Washable markers were used for tracing out shapes or patterns to follow.
I also had a large supply of latex gloves and plastic grocery bags for wrapping later.
