What happens when you get a bunch of hippies together? You tie dye things of course! This was my first time tie dying since like middle school and it was a lot of fun. I made each of the boys a shirt, Daniel a shirt, and a tie dyed a yard of cotton fabric for me.
The colors turned out a bit more muted than I would have liked. The boys' shirts and Daniel's shirt aren't too bad, but my fabric has A LOT of fade and white space. The white space is partly how I tied it, and after doing some reading up on tie dye I found that I probably should've prewashed my fabric and soaked it in the soda ash a bit longer to have the colors more pronounced.
Ultimately it didn't really matter how our tie dyed items turned out, it was more about the company and the kids having a good time. But I have been bitten by the tie dye bug now! The past few days my mind has been running, thinking up all the neat things that I could tie dye and make. I think we're going to have to order a family kit soon and maybe have fun together making some more stuff tie dyed.
