A friend (who keeps a lovely blog here) had a tie-dye gathering yesterday, as she was inspired by a beautiful Tie-Dye book. I had a couple of white t-shirts I bought at my local second hand shop, plus some old stained t-shirts and leggings, and when we found we had some dye left, the bag I brought and a hankie.
It was a great morning spent with some really lovely women and we had a blast tying and later generally making a mess.
In case you’re curious about the methods and results, I took before and after photos of most. These are my favourites, but I loved all the results.
What I learned from this experience was that the thick elastics create more dramatic ties. I’d like to try the accordion style again, but folding on a diagonal next time.
