I've been tie dying for a few years and here are a couple of my favorites. I always use Procion MX dyes, usually on cotton.

One of my all time favorites, though I didn't expect it to work out so well and the shirt I used is a bit ragged. I love it anyways. The back is just marbled.


A Christmas present for my sister in law. She's been wearing it constantly because it's one of only a couple shirts she has that fit over her pregnant belly  Cheesy


Another gift:


This one reminds me of old creepy windows.


This is the only one that is not cotton. It is tencel, which dyed beautifully! The photo does not do it justice. It has a slight sheen the camera had trouble with. In reality, the colors are even more saturated and quite crisp in comparison to cotton.


Thanks for looking!

They re very nice. I like the last one the most. The second one reminds me of drawings or pictures of human aura.

Ahh I love the first one! I tried to make a peace sign once, but it didn't exactly work out. Tongue Yours is perfect. I like how it's tilted too.

Thank you!
The peace sign is actually tilted because I was worried I'd never get it straight  Cheesy but it worked out really nicely and I'm glad I did it that way. I'm sure you could do it too if you keep trying!

Did you use stitching for the peace sign?

It's been a while since I did it, but as far as I remember, I stitched it with doubled dental floss (tied really tightly). I know I did two rows for the outer circle so I could get the pink then the yellow outline. I should do it again sometime and take pictures so that I remember better next time  Tongue
Hope that helps though!
