Add some color to your life with this crochet rainbow top from I Love to Create. A One-Step Dye Kit and a cotton shirt is all you need for this fancy top. Keep it for yourself or give it as a gift. Find this project and many more fabric dye projects in the free eBook for fabric dye inspiration and instruction, Fun with Fabric Dye

Materials:

  • Tulip® One-Step Tie-Dye Kits™
    • Ultimate Colors
  • Tulip® Surface Cover™
  • Shirt -100% cotton – with texture, crochet or interesting design at the top

  3. Wearing rubber gloves, add water to all dye bottles to lines indicated. Replace caps tightly and shake until dye is dissolved.
     
  4. Dip the tip of a cotton swab into one of the dyes. Touch to center of textured area at top of shirt. Let the dye bleed as far it will go, then add additional dots of dye to cover desired area. Repeat with different colors as desired to dye all of the textured area.
     
  5. Squeeze large dots of Turquoise across the body of shirt.
     
  6. Pour out Turquoise until 2/3 remains, then fill remaining area in bottle with water and shake to dilute. Squeeze more dots onto shirt.
     
  7. Pour out ½ of dye bottle and fill remaining area with more water and shake. Squeeze diluted turquoise onto the remaining white areas of shirt.

@ml1966 3764631, This project is only for the tie-dye and does not include any crochet instructions. You must already have a top with texture, crochet or interesting design at the top, as instructed in the materials list. Here is a link to some great crochet top patterns from our sister site, AllFreeCrochet: http://www.allfreecrochet.com/Tops --Editor of FaveCrafts

Where do I find the pattern for the crochet around the top???
