Packed with design secrets, color guidance, and expert tips and advice on how to make each design your own and unique to you, Tie Dye: Dye It, Wear It, Share It brings you 22 step-by-step projects for everything from garments to home decor. With helpful sections on the history of tie dye, different types of dye, tie dyeing techniques from around the world, common materials and even the science behind the art, Tie Dye: Dye It, Wear It, Share It is really an all-enclusive look into the art of tie dye...and how it's being used by kids and adults alike to create fun and fashionable attire that's fun to wear.

Broken down by type of tie dye technique, the projects in Tie Dye: Dye It, Wear It, Share It come with a full color photo of the completed project, as well as level of difficulty, tools and materials, a list of main dye colors and accent colors, detailed instructions and even colorful illustrations showing you how to prepare your piece and block your colors for the ultimate tie dye experience. The Crystalline Scarf, for example, has the look of marbling that's easily doable for beginners. You don't even have to use rubber bands! Just scrunch the scarf and get to tie dyeing. The look of this scarf comes from having some of the scarf more emmersed in the dye while other parts peak out above the puddles to create a somewhat ombre look to each color segment.

Filled with wonderful instructions for dyeing leggings, shirts, scarves, tablecloths, totebags, and more, the patterns in this book will help you add lots of color and style to your life...from what you wear to how you decorate your home.
