Tie Dye

As most of you probably know my 14 year old son Darcee has decided to go a bit hippy on me.'
You know what I mean a phase of Bob Marley, Reggae Music, Dreadlocks and now....
Tie-died T-shirts.
I certainly love him for his individuality.
So we got together one day and gave home made tie dyeing a go.










We prepared our T-shirts as directed by watching many You tube tutorials.
We dipped, dunked, soaked and waited patiently for the dye to take hold.
Then squeezed, drained and rinsed.

Not a bad result for a couple of 1st timers.

I have always loved tie dye shirts. I haven't made these shirts for a while now. It would be a fun project to do one weekend.
