Tie Dye Radiance

For our first day of the home school year, my youngest daughter and I decided to make tie dye t-shirts for her. We bought the materials at Walmart.

She's mixing up
the soda ash to soak
the white t-shirts.
It is supposed to make
the cloth more color fast.

Traditional sunburst method

Another sunburst shirt


This one will be more striped

A few days later 
we made a t-shirt
for her dad's birthday

One for me

Two t-shirts for
my grandson's
first birthday.
Lots of fun! I think I've found a hobby to continue!

Right now on my desk I have one more tie dye project tightly wrapped in a plastic bag. I just made it this evening, so it needs to sit for several hours before I rinse. I didn't use soda ash this time, so I'm curious to see how it will turn out. It's a turquoise (mixed aqua and green) sunburst wall hanging for my bedroom, but I'll show you the finished product in another post!
