When I think summer, I think picnics, trips to the beach, baseball games, amusement parks, and of course, my favorite summer treat, fresh watermelon!!
This week, Avery and I decided to do a little tie-dyeing! I had seen the one-step tie dye kits at Target, and thought it would be a fun activity that we could do together, outside! I grabbed a kit and some t-shirts, and we headed home to get to work!
While Avery was working on her shirts, I started thinking of some cute tees that I could make for her. I decided to make her a watermelon tie-dye tee that she could wear to an upcoming picnic!!
The shirt came out so cute that I thought I’d share this simple tutorial with you, fabulous readers!
Step 5: Start dyeing your shirt! I started with pink, then did the green. Make sure you really saturate your shirt for a more vibrant color. (You could also try the dip-dye method if you’re using a larger quantity of dye, by putting the dye into a bucket, and dipping the shirt in)
Step 7: Rinse your shirt until the water runs clear, then follow the washing directions on your dye. (The Tulip dye I used suggests that you wash on the hottest setting with a very small amount of detergent)
Step 8: Wear your shirt with pride!
Isn’t it cute? I think this shirt is PERFECT for summer!!!
Avery wore it for a fun little picnic at the park!
And enjoyed every bite!!
Come back on Wednesday to see how Avery’s tie dye shirts came out, in next week’s Wordless Wednesday!
