Tie-dye started getting really popular in the mid 1960s. It’s name is pretty straight forward. The clothes were “tied” up with string (or now rubber bands) and then “dyed” with fabric dye. So while this is a super easy project for kids, it’s great for adults too!
There are different techniques used to achieve different results. You can start with a dry shirt and add dye. You can have your shirt more damp. You can add ice cubes and then dye. Never the less it will turn out amazing. I don’t think there is a “wrong” way of tie-dying.
I like to start with a damp shirt because then it already has some water in it and helps the dye to distribute better. I also find this method helps stretch the dye further because you’ll need less of it.
Beautiful. Just beautiful. You’ll find it hard not to look at every piece of fabric in your house and wonder what it would look like with a tie-dye design on it.
