Cute Green Tie Dye Top

By:

If you want to go green this is the perfect way to do it. In six steps you can make a tie dye top from I Love to Create for yourself or for someone else. You can also wear this for St. Patrick's Day!
 

 

Materials:

  • Tulip® Craft Gloves™
  • Tulip® Surface Cover™
  • Tulip® Custom Dye Color Kit™
  • Spoon – large – extra-long handle
  • Rubber bands
  • Container – plastic – 2 gallon
  • Shirt – white – 100% cotton or natural fibers

 

Instructions:

  1. Cover work surface with Surface Cover™. Set plastic container on covered surface and wearing Craft Gloves™, follow booklet instructions to create Eucalyptus dye (or desired color).
     
  2. Prewash shirt to remove sizing. Do not use fabric softener or dryer sheets.
     
  3. Lay shirt out flat on work surface. Pull up a 3” section of fabric on the bottom right corner of shirt and tightly wrap a rubber band around fabric. Move down another 2” and wrap another rubber band and repeat one more time for a total of three rubber-banded sections.
     
  4. Mix dye Wearing rubber gloves, mix 1 gallon (3.8 liters) of hot water (equivalent to hot coffee, around 170° - 190° F (77° - 88° C) but not boiling), dye and pour 3 tablespoons salt for each dye mixture. See charts for different dye color formulas and combinations (we used Guava on the dress). The dye mixture should be sufficient to dye up to 1/2 pound (22 grams) of fabric, equivalent to a large men's T-shirt.
     
  5. Immerse fabric into dye mixture. Stir continuously for the first 15 minutes, then occasionally every 5-10 minutes for the next 45 minutes. Total time will be one hour.
     
  6. Fill washer to "large load" setting with hottest water suitable for fabric and a small amount of laundry soap. Wash and dry separately. Wash separately the first few times. Do not allow dyed fabric to rest wet on other items.
