I have never done tie dye before but one day I would like to try it it looks kind of cool.

Love my tie-dye! I still have some my old, well-worn stuff!

I love tie-dyed clothing! Love all the neat colors in one garment!!

I love tie-dye dresses and skirts because it's a great way to rejuvenate your wardrobe without a huge outlay, and it's fun to create the different looks too!

Never attempted tie dyeing cloths before, if I was to give it a try I would try it on something small, like a handkerchief. The instructions seem easy to follow.

I absolutely adore tie-dye shirts with matching headbands.

We did a tie dye birthday party for my granddaughter. We even had tie dyed cupcakes! It was fun to see how each child's t-shirt and the baby's onesie turned out, when they all used the same colors, just placed the rubber bands in different places.

The tie dye scarves are beautiful and stylish. I have learned such a variety of techniques! Thanks..

Adults love tie dye, too. Anything I get a spot on that I can't get out gets tie dyed! Poof! Spot gone.

I have never tie dyed anything yet but from looking at the patterns it is something I would definitely like to try. Maybe a tee shirt for starters.

I love tie dye projects. Keep them coming!

Love to do tie dye projects in the summer with the kids. What a great list!

My only comment about this, is that I'd really like to see the end result on the same page as the instructions. And it's all instruction pages. Not only this page, but most pages. Would be the frosting on the cake, so to speak. :-)
