"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Dappled Heart Shirt

The tie dye techniques used to create a Dappled Heart Shirt from I Love to Create are a stunning way to make tie dye shirts for everyone. Adorn a basic tee or top with this explosively vivacious heart emblazoned on the front.

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.

Love this pattern. Can't wait to try it. We love hearts!

This is awesome! Great for my tween niece. Thought she was too cool for tie dye, but loves hearts! FaveCraftsTieDye

I wish there was a picture of how the shirt is folded and secured!
