I went to get my hair highlighted on Saturday and ran into the Harvest Festival. The tie dyes caught my eye so I just had to stop. I intended to buy a couple for myself and Ireland, but the ladies from Parties2dye4 talked me into making my own.
I've never made tie dye shirts before and thought that it would be really difficult. I had the easy part. The ladies there did the actual folding and rolling and rubber banding. I put the dye on the shirts. Then brought them home letting them sit in the bags for 6 hours. Then Ireland and I rinsed them out and threw them in the wash for 2 complete washes and then to dry.
Ireland's design is a heart. I think it looks pretty cute.
I wanted the Classic Swirl
They turned out much better than I expected. I sure hope they don't fade too much. Anyone have any ideas for how to keep the colors vibrant? Every time I buy a tie dye they fade a lot. The ladies told me that they shouldn't fade. I hope they are right.
I might just have to try the entire process myself. I would love to have another shirt with pinks and purples or blues and greens.
Today I'll be working on the Pink Panda Pattern...been dragging my feet on that one;D
Have a great weekend!
