This project is a collaboration between my friend, Mary (aka “Aunt Mary”), and me. She has a gorgeous tie dye fabric we have been waiting for her to make for a while. We finally get it, and I’m really happy with the result.
If you’re looking for a great tie dyed fabric, Mary’s also doing the same thing for a line of fabric called “Rit Dye” and it’s awesome. This is a great project for beginners because you can easily modify a tie dye fabric by using the dye to create a pattern of different shades based on the fabric.
Its a great project to try out or to get to know the different patterns and textures available. You can see that the texture is like paper, which is pretty strong and tough. You can use it for a simple tie dye tie or you can experiment with different patterns and textures to see if you like it.
The RitDye website has a very helpful video on the dye, including a link to the dye tutorial video. I recommend watching this tutorial to get started.
The tutorial video shows how you can use your fingers to apply the dye. You can just get the dye stuff out of the tube, so it’s fairly easy to do. Once you have a go, there are lots of different textures, patterns, and colors to experiment with. You can get the dye by doing a few simple dyeing sessions and then blending it into your favorite fabric.
I’m not sure if there is such a thing as a good tutorial video for dyeing fabric.
There sure is. To get started with the dyeing we use a simple tube of dye with an eyedropper. I have a soft spot for tubes of dye because they often come in small plastic bottles or small plastic squeeze tubes.
It’s worth noting that most dyeing kits come with at least one other item. Sometimes this includes a tube of dye and a piece of fabric, and other times it’s just the dye, a tube, and a piece of fabric. If you’re going to be starting out with the dyeing kit, make sure to carefully read through the instructions so you know exactly what you’re doing. The instructions will tell you how many drops you should use.
rit dye kits are great for beginners because they can be used on all types of fabric and they come in easy sizes. You don’t have to worry about threading your needle or finding a ballpoint pen to color your fabric. Also, it’s easier to use your colors one at a time than using a bucket of dye and a dye bottle and getting a mess on your hands.
The instructions will tell you exactly how many drops you should use. The dye is actually a kind of powder and when mixed with water it forms a dye that will make it stick to fabrics. In this case, it will be a dye that will make the tie dye tie dye look like it was made with a ballpoint pen. But before you start dyeing, make sure you rinse your fabrics thoroughly and dry them.
