Okay, we’ve been in quarantine long enough that I’m finally giving in to the tie dye trend. What else is there to do, right?! I’ve seen a method that gives you more color control than the traditional approach, and so I thought I’d give it a try on some market bags. Here’s how I made my rainbow tie dye bag:
Place the cooling rack on the pan and lay your bag on top. Mix your dye according to the instructions (I did this directly in the squeeze bottles). Apply your color to each section. Excess dye will drip through on the pan.
Place flat in a plastic bag (so no parts of the color are touching one another), and then let sit overnight. Remove rubber bands and rinse in cool water until the water is clear.
Overall it was a fun project to try! I’ve never applied dye with a squeeze bottle before, so I’m excited to play around with that method a little more and see what other results I could come up with. Doesn’t a rainbow tie dye dress sound like something I should add to my wardrobe?!
Would love to know if you’ve also tried dyeing and what fun things you’ve come up with!
