4th of July

Tie Dye Fun

So we started with our socks and bandanas.  Traditional tie dying. 

On to a t-shirt.If you band your shirt like this it will end up having a strip effect like this.

THEN....we got creative.  We put various colors of dye in spray bottles.  We masked some fun patriotic shapes with sticky foamies and I even cut fun shapes out of contact paper with my Silhoutte die cut machine.
We sprayed around the stencils to create a spatter of color and then revealed the white shape underneath.
  Lots of fun.  The kids can't wait to wear them for the 4th.  We made our own dye with Rit dye, but Wal-mart sells a fun kit by Tulip for both of these methods.  It runs about $10, but you get 4-5 colors.
