Last year I had a crafting party for my birthday so I decided to make it a tradition and do it again this year! This year we did Tie Dye! I also did a few ice dyeing projects! I bought a TON of supplies because, well, i just had SOOOOOOOOOO many ideas! I ended up with a lot of dye left so I'm sure I'll be doing more soon, especially ice dyeing!



First i started with bleaching a few black clothing items. Some yoga pants, leggings a tee shirts! I love the result from the bleaching and then adding dye to them made them even better! I definitely want to bleach more of my clothes! Two of the shirts we left bleached only but I don't have pics of those yet. My boyfriend did the second tee and second pair of pants!

 

We also tried ice dyeing! Such a fun and easy technique! I did some fabric and a tee shirt. My boyfriend did the black/blue one.


We made matching swirl tees. His is the first one.


Then we tried shapes. I did the alien, SO did the smiley!


We tried lots of different ways to fold them to get different looks.
 Crinkling the tees was my favorite! SO did the first two.


My friend did these.


My mom did these.


My grandma did these.


We had a blast and I'm so exited to do more!

what do you think? -audio

Tie Dye looks like such a fun craft, one day I'll do it but atm I'm occupied with other things. The shirts look amazing, not sure which is my favourite because they all have amazing parts. A craft birthday is a great idea, and I'm sure you'll be able to use the rest of the dye.

I love that your grandmother got in on the fun.  My favorite has to be the skull, but all of the shirts came out well.  Happy birthday!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
