This year I bought my boys tie dye Easter egg dye kits. They turned out pretty cool. I wanted to come up with something to use the extra dye on.
I found some nice white flannel in my fabric stash and cut up some rectangles. Then I twisted from corner to corner diagonally. Next I tied the fabric in a knot and tucked in each end.
My boys got to do the fun part. We had a very small eye dropper left from the egg kit. I had the boys squirt random colors all over the tied up fabric. I made sure that they got deep inside the knot as well.
Then we untied the fabric and voila! Cute pillow fabric was born!
My 4 yr old wanted to tie dye some of his undies and socks as well. So, of course we did. They turned out pretty cool too.
I think that most of the dye will wash out of the socks and undies, but it was still a super fun project. If you can come up with things to tie dye that you don't have to wash, that would be the best. Happy Tie Dying!
