DIY 4: Tie-Dye


Rit Dye
Rubber gloves
Rubber bands or string
white vinegar to set the dye in the fabric

This is the shirt after we tied it all up.

The next step was to immerse it in the blue dye and let it sit for a while, then pull it out, wring it out, and let it dry. After it was almost dry, you can cut of the twine and hang it up to completely dry. Then, to set the color you need to soak it in a sink with cold water and a cup of plain vinegar. Vinegar will set the color. Then let it dry again and iron.
