One thing you may not know about tie-dye is that once you mix it, you should use it all up within the hour. According to the instructions, it will become less effective as time goes on. I didn’t realize that until further into dyeing yarns, so I went and grabbed a shirt and used up my dye. I’m glad I did, I really like the how it came out!
For my next round of dying, I had a friend over and we tie-dyed some shirts. As we each took turns dyeing, the other would look through Pinterest and figure out what to try next. We had stopped off at the store earlier in the day and I grabbed some XL t-shirts to use as giveaways. He, on the other hand, made shirts for himself. Selfish, I know!
I ended up making 3 giveaways:
I stuck mostly to spirals. My friend seemed to enjoy rectangular and striped designs more. Here’s some of his:
I plan on dying more yarns (since I have so many undyed skeins), so I’m sure more dye projects will be popping up soon.
