Tie dye circle


All the rage in the 70s, tie dye is still a great way to create some interesting designs and make a boring white t-shirt a lot more fun. The rubber bands restrict the dye leaving different patterns.

The bands will restrict where the dye can reach


To create a circle effect, the centre of the t-shirt was bunched up and several rubber bands tied along the length.

The babygro was a more random experiment with bands around the arms and legs and the the middle rolled into a ball with bands criss crossed over.

Rinse well after you have dyed the clothes and then remove the rubber bands


Follow the instructions from your fabric dye. I used Dylon which required dissolving the sachet in 500ml of warm water and adding it to 6 litres of warm water that had 250g salt dissolved in it. The clothes were then added and mixed regularly for an hour before rinsing, washing and allowing to dry.
Don't forget to wear rubber gloves to protect your hands from being stained.

Tie Dye is not just for clothes, why not try a tea towel or napkins?

Great idea
If you have several children, make a set of tie dyed t-shirts all the same color. If they all wear the same color shirts to a crowded event, it is easy to spot your kids. My daughter has eight children, and this works well.
