I was at work one day and someone I work with wore a tie dye scrub top. I thought to myself "why haven't I of all people made one of those yet?!" So I forewarned her that I was going to make one myself and promptly went to Walmart and Hobby Lobby to get my supplies! I bought a relatively good white scrub top from Walmart
Then I drove my excited butt to Hobby Lobby and actually found a tie dye kit on sale! yippee! Unfortunately I had to wait a few days to actually make the shirt bc ya know I was busy. When I had a chance I rubber banded my design- a mixture of starburst patterns. If you have never tie dyed before there are guidelines included with the dye as well as some good ones online.
clothing to dye
3 sets of gloves
(I highly recommend using both a trash bag and papertowels on a hard large work surface. Also have a few extra gloves handy and some walmart sacks. I'll explain the walmart sacks soon.)
Any fabric works better slightly damp so I got my shirt wet and laid it on top of the papertowels which were on top of the trash bag like so
I put on my first pair of gloves and filled up the dye bottles with hot water to absorb all the powder.
I let my shirt sit wrapped up for around six hours. Then I rinsed it alone in a large load in the washer. Then washed it on an entire cycle and dried it.
I love it!
Anyone have any tie dye to share with the Redheaded mama?
