I was in the Secret Santa swap this past December, and noticed that fishstix43 had requested tie dye t-shirts. Now, I've wanted to try tie dying again as I'd read up on some techniques since the last time I'd tried. So, my brain goes "hey, someone wants a tie dye shirt! I should make... one..."

Which turned into 17+ tie dye projects over two nights.

I kept this one Smiley



This one was for my niece's birthday:



I sent these two to fishstix43:





I bought a couple of unlabeled scarves at the thrift store, and they held dye in incredibly different ways:





Also picked up a handful of bandanas to practice on, one of the heart ones went to fishstix as well:











And of course, more shirts!











I had so much fun making all of these and am itching for a chance to do it again. I'll be scouring the thrift stores and sale racks for cool pieces to dye!

Awesome! Impressive array, wow. The spiral rainbows are my faves but they all look great, super clear colours.

Thank you all!

The spirals are my favourite, but I also really like the last one with the bursts on the sides. Unfortunately it doesn't suit me in the least  it makes my torso look a really odd shape.
