Tie DIY T-Shirt by Erica Fields

Hello crafty friends! It’s Erica here on the American Crafts blog! Today I am sharing with you this amazing Tie DIY 82 piece kit! It comes with everything you need to dye your shirt or whatever you heart desires. This kit is sold at Michaels stores.

The first thing that you will need to do is decide what you want to tie dye. I chose a t-shirt and also some small canvas bags I found at my local craft store. Next you will need to take the rubber bands and wrap them around your fabric.

There are many different tie dye techniques to create unique designs. I chose the bullseye technique and also stripes. The next step is take your project outside. I went to my local dollar store and picked up a few inexpensive items in order to prep my workspace. I found a rack and a disposable pan to place my shirts and bags on.

Now we are ready to select our tie dye colors!!

Once y0u have chosen your colors, you can start applying the dye to your fabric. Make sure you saturate the front and back very well. It will look something like this when you are done:

The next step is to let your project sit overnight to air dry. Once it is dry you can place it in your dryer so the dye will set. Next you should wash your project on a regular cycle and dry as usual. That’s it, easy! Now for the final result:

I never knew tie dye could be this much fun to do! I really enjoyed the process and think that this would be perfect project to do with your kids or grandchildren. I also love the fact that the dye is already premixed for you! So you are ready to start creating! I hope you give this a try! Until next time, happy crafting!
