I am almost embarrassed to say that I have never tie-dyed anything before in my life until last week.
If I tell you the truth I was surprise how easy it was to transform an ordinary piece of fabric into something that I love.
Using TULIP Tie-Dye Kit I made this Flag Pillow.
The TULIP Tie-Dye Kit comes with everything you need but the fabric.
Includes 8 4oz bottles, 12 different color dyes, 8 pairs of gloves and 40 rubber bands.
How cool is that?
First read the directions.
When I was done reading the second thing I did was test the dyes.
I wanted to make sure I had the right color. As I tried them I labeled each bag with the name of its color for future reference and use.
At this point I was ready to create.
I mixed, inside of the bottle that came with the kit, the dyes with water according to the direction.
I wanted my pillow to have a rustic old look so I eye balled the stripes for the flag.
Using the tip of the bottle I traced the red ones first.
Then I used my finger to spread the dye.
More dye you put more even the look will be. I wasn’t worried about it being perfect so I just had fun with it.
After I was done with the red I repeated the same step for the navy blue rectangle.
Then all I had left was to let it dry and sew the flag to another piece of burlap to make a pillow.
I added some old metal buttons that I had to give it a little more detail.
I was done and ready to display it!
So if you were like me thinking that Tie Dye is just for T-shirt… think again my friend!
Next time you think about Tie Dye make sure to give TULIP Tie Dye a try.
