Dappled Heart Shirt


Materials:

  • Tulip® One-Step Tie-Dye Kit™ - Ultimate Colors
  • Plastic tablecloth
  • Tee shirt, 100% cotton, white
  • Pencil
     

Instructions:

  1. Prewash shirt to remove sizing. Do not use fabric softener or dryer sheets.
     
  2. Cover work surface with a plastic tablecloth. Lay shirt onto prepared surface.
     
  3. Wearing rubber gloves, add water to dye bottles. Replace caps tightly. Shake until dye is dissolved.
     
  4. Fold shirt in half lengthwise.
     
  5. Draw half of a heart on fold, using pencil.
     
  6. Accordion fold fabric along heart outline, forcing it into a straight line.
     
  7. Secure with rubber band. Apply a second rubber band about an inch away from the first band (towards the body of the shirt). This is an optional step but allows for an additional color to be applied in the middle banded area.
     
  8. Squeeze Purple Dye onto center of heart. Squeeze a line of Fuchsia Dye around Purple Dye (between rubber bands). Squeeze Fuchsia Dye onto rest of shirt.
     
  9. Cover fabric with plastic tablecloth. Let set 4 to 6 hours. Wash in a large load of water with a small amount of laundry soap. Line dry.
