My friend Stephanie and I just finished making tie dyed Valentine shirts for our favorite little valentines and we couldn’t be happier with them.
I have to admit that I've never made tie dye clothing before and I had no idea how much fun it is!
So, once again, if I can do it – you can definitely do it!! The best part – it was super easy! Once you get the rubber band around the heart, you can’t mess it up.
All you need is a white shirt, two colors of tie dye (red and another color), rubber bands, paper to create heart template, washable marker, and water bottle.
Step 2: Mist your shirt with water using a spray bottle.
Step 3: Fold the t-shirt in half. Place the folded heart along the fold of the t-shirt and use a washable marker to trace the heart on the shirt.
Step 5: Add rubber bands about every 3-4 inches along the rest of the shirt.
Step 6: Prepare the tie dye by following the directions on the box. I used black and red for Connor’s shirt and my friend used purple and red for her daughter’s shirt.
Step 7: Cover the heart end of the shirt with the red tie-dye and the rest of the shirt with your second color. You could even add a third color of tie-dye if you want to.
Step 8: Wrap tight in plastic wrap and let sit for 24 hours.
Step 9: Wash and dry.
Step 10: Admire your AWESOME heart tie-dye shirt.
My favorite part is that the heart is on the front and back. I was not expecting the heart to be on the back too so it just might be my favorite part.
This weekend we will be making tie dye shirts for ourselves because we love them so much!!
Have you ever tie dyed anything before? I need some more ideas for fun ways to tie dye.
