dip dyed...how to share


Dip-Dyed T-Shirt

More chic than a tie-dye but just as fun to make, 

How to Dip-Dye with Fabric Dye

We used Rit liquid dyes in Denim and Navy (ritdye.com). You can combine colors for custom shades. This technique can be adapted for unfinished wooden items and bamboo blinds (let them dry on paper towels), and paper (let the dye solution cool before dipping paper).

Tools and Materials

Sheer jersey long-sleeve T-shirt, in White, from americanapparel.net
Large plastic storage bin or galvanized-steel bin
Stir stick
All-purpose liquid dye
Sample fabric or paper towel
Sewing pins
Synthrapol detergent (optional)
