Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope!
For dinner tonight I made Honey garlic glazed Salmon and spicy pan seared red potatoes and for desert I made homemade peanut butter cookies and decaf chocolate mint Dalgona coffee. (belly is happy)
Well, as I said the other day, I’ve been venturing into the 60’s flash back that is tie dye. I’ve completed 4 outfits and 3 extra shirts (tanks).
The dye brand I chose was Rit and the colors I used are :
I also purchased 4 dish basins ($18.88 on Amazon), 4 baking cooling racks ($12.65 on Amazon), 10 squirt bottles ($12.99 on Amazon), a roll of cling wrap ($3.99 on Amazon), rubber bands ($3 on Amazon for a big bag of assorted colors and sizes), 4 v neck short sleeve tee-shirts (white cotton) 2 pairs of lounge capri style pants (white cotton), and 2 pairs of yoga pants (white polyester), and I also had 3 white tank tops that I added to the pile. I also needed gloves which I already had.
The yoga pants had to be dyed on the stove because they used a special type of dye called Dyemore … it’s for synthetic fibers…. I used Sapphire Blue and Royal Purple Dyemore for these 2 pants and for the rest of the colors I had to use some some Color Stay Dye Fixative as well. The Fixative I purchased off Amazon for $2.99 a bottle and I purchased 2 bottles.
The method of tie dye I used is called the Scrunch Method ,
So how did I do?? Let’s take a look.
And that was everything I dyed this weekend. I can’t wait to purchase some more flat white pieced to dye … I think I’ll experiment with doing 2 or more colors next time and now that I have the hand of it I’m sure that I will be able to get better color payoff.
I’m actually thinking I might make some curtains for my craft room and I might just try to tie dye them …. I think that would be super fun.
Well that’s all for now dolls. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits and good health.
Remember dolls … Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
