Tying up Some Fun






I don't have a lot of time for craft projects these days, but I had a tie-dye kit that had been sitting in my closet for years and finally decided to put it to use. A friend and I dyed onesies and little t-shirts for the wee ones in our lives. We also used Rit liquid dye in buckets to make easy versions of the ombre clothing in stores this spring. Our favorites were the ones with the top third dyed blue, the middle left white, and the bottom third dyed green. In the wash, the dyes ran enough to dye the middle white section a lighter bluegreen. Easy fun!


Now it's time to get back to laundry and dishes...

Yes...I hope to see the end product. We did tie-dye before, but we used the Dylon brand...have you used Tulip dye ever?

I like to dye things that have stains on them...we had some white sundresses, for an example!
