today my bf's aunt and cousins and I all tye dyed shirts! I don't have pics of their shirts yet but I have pics of mine  Grin
 nothin all that special but they're neat and I had a fun day.

I dyed 3 tanks and 3 tees

(I just realized I'm missing one shot of me in the all blue one but imagine the blue and purple one with no purple and that's about it)
tanks: (I'll thumbnail the boobage shots >.< )

everything together:

we used RIT dye (fantastic stuff btw) and ALOT of boiling hot water. and now I have plenty of tye dye goodness to take with me to Hawaii  Grin

the orange tank somehow got blue on it (prolly from touching one of the blue shirts) I'm thinking of ways to fix that or make it look like on purpose.
I think I'm going to just start saving up old shirts and stuff and when I get enough, I'll do this again. the kids really enjoyed picking out the colors and helping dye the shirts. they kept asking their mom if they could dye more shirts  Grin

If you want deeper and more durable colors try the fiber reactive dyes at Dharma Trading. Tie dying is so addictive! Smiley
