Have you ever wanted to know how to tie dye? Let me walk you through step by step how to tie dye a shirt and then turn it into a cool tie dye t-shirt bag is super easy to make takes only takes minutes to sew.
I used Tulip One-Step Mini Tie Dye Kit (found at craft stores) and a child’s medium t-shirt. We already had a One-Step Spray Dye set that my daughter wanted to try. The plain bottles are easier to handle, but she loved wanted to try the spray bottles! There are many tie dye techniques and some require extra ingredients like soda ash and special dyes. This is why these one step tips are so appealing.
Note: We did not prewash our shirt. Someone was in a hurry to get to the project. Normally I would always prewash any fabric before beginning a craft project. However, in this case, it didn’t seem to matter.
How to Tie Dye
To make a spiral tie dye shirt a fork is a really handy tool. Place the fork in the center middle of the shirt. Press down firmly (without going through the fabric) and begin twisting. Twist until the entire shirt is in a spiral. Tightly wrap rubber bands around the shirt. These tulip kits are super easy to use and include everything you need, even gloves! Just add water and you are ready to mix the dye and start dying. Be sure to wear those rubber gloves! Place dye in each section between the rubber bands. Make sure to really saturate the fabric. Placing the shirt on paper towels will keep the excess dye from running everywhere. There are many tie dye shirt patterns you can try. We love spiral tie dye patterns.
Allow to sit for about six to 24 hours. I typically place it in a plastic bag to keep from getting on other things. Wash your shirt following manufacturer instructions. We placed the shirt in our washing machine (alone or with other tie dyed shirts) and washed with cold water. Once you have made your amazing tie dye shirt you are ready to turn it into a cool bag for the summer.
Tie Dye Ideas
What can you do with tie dye shirts? How about turning it into a fun bag. You might want to make some shoes to match!
How to make a t-shirt into a bag
Lay the shirt out flat. Align edges of the sleeves and bottom of the shirt. Carefully fold the shirt in half. Cut around the neck and sleeves. Open up the shirt. Turn shirt inside out and sew across the bottom of the shirt. Turn the shirt right side out and you have an amazing bag!
