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!

She didn’t care though.

They had a blast dyeing all the things!!!

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

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

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.

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