Tie-Dye Insanity

Tie-Dye Round 3!
The tie-dye addiction continues.  This round started because we needed a few gifts & thought it would be fun to give a tie-dye shirt....and you can't just die 2 shirts - you have to die a whole bunch so you don't waste the die.  Here's how they turned out.

Oh - we tried something different - this time we did not soak the shirts in Soda Ash.  We did learn that you CAN'T tie-dye a dry shirt like it says on the package.  We spritzed the shirts with water so they were damp.  I am thinking the Soda Ash step might be vital after all...hmmmmm.

 Three swirls down the side

 Colorful stripes

 Center circle - I love this one

 Center swirl

 Off-center swirl - boys

 Off-center swirl - girls

 More swirls

 Boy's Bulls Eye

 Top and bottom swirl

 Top swirl& scrunch bottom

 Little Girl Stripe

 Triple swirl & scrunch - love it!

 Top & bottom swirl - love this too

 Ella's heart - looks like an alien - don't know why she gave it eyes!

 Swirl for Hannah

Overall I say they turned out good.  Right now they are drying - then I will rinse them in cold water - hopefully all the colors stay!
