Tie-Dye ALL The Things: Part Deux

tiedyeallthethings

I’m fairly certain that this post doesn’t need a lot of explanation. Yesterday, we tie-dyed all the white stuff left in our home.

Today, we rinsed and washed it out.

Eventually, we modeled it, too.

My new tank top.

As it turns out, my sun hat is polyester…not cotton…so it didn’t take the dye well. I was bummed.

Tie-Dye ALL The Things!

After our buddy the Barbarian left, we were bored and decided that tie-dyeing would put an end to that. I changed into all black, the girls changed into crummy clothes and we immediately set to work…

It’s time to tie-dye!!!

We laid out all our garments and decide which pattern would suit them individually the best.

I ran out of rubber bands pretty quickly and resorted to using zip ties…which I think work better anyway.

There seriously was nothing white left in our home by the time we were through.

Although I was only provided with RED, YELLOW and BLUE…I used the mixer bottle to make ORANGE, GREEN and PURPLE as well.

I put those colors in mason jars. Next time I buy a kit though, I’ll officially have enough squeeze bottles to do the job and avoid jars.

All the whites soaked in the soda ash mixture for about 20 minutes.

I had set up all the ziplock bags and got them ready to stuff our newly dyed things inside.

I also fitted the girls and myself with some gloves…so we wouldn’t dye ourselves.

Cinderella looked pretty ridiculous wearing my sized gloves, lol!

IMG_5143

She didn’t care though.

They had a blast dyeing all the things!!!

IMG_5142

My tank top. I can’t wait to see how this turns out!

IMG_5144

Monster High Girl even tie-dyed a shirt for Daddy…that he most likely will never wear…but maybe he’ll surprise us?

IMG_5145

A bit of a ways into our craft, Cinderella spilled the orange dye all down the front of my pants and all over my feet…

I look like an Oompa Loompa now.

IMG_5146

Once Cindy was done dyeing all her clothes, she commandeered my camera…and actually managed to get a few good shots!

Nic took over for the last shots of our dyeing fun. Tomorrow, we rinse and wash our new creations!!!

IMG_5173

We tie dyed our picnic table too…on accident, lol.

IMG_5174

Stay tuned for Part 2 of our tie-dyeing adventures!!! We will reveal and model our designs!

WE CAN’T WAIT EITHER!!!
