Tie-dye T-shirts

What would a Tie-dye 4th of July be without tie-dyed t-shirts?  In red, white, and blue, of course!  We’re not reinventing the wheel here.  We just bought a tie-dye kit and some plain white t-shirts from the local big box store and got to work.

Our kit did not call for the traditional soaking in soda ash, which made the process a little simpler.  It also had great instructions for how to achieve some specific tie-dye looks.  The fun is in the folding, gathering, and rubber-banding of the material.  Get creative, and you’ll be pleased with the results.  The great part is that there are no rules in tie-dye and kids dig it!

When you are ready to apply the dye, be sure to use lots of trash bags to protect surfaces.  Be sure to saturate the fabric with the dye for a vibrant effect.

 Follow the instructions for rinsing, washing, and drying your shirts.  Soon enough, you’ll be rockin’ your very own tie-dyed 4th of July t-shirts!
