Summertime and Tie Dyes

I had a request from my son-in-law for a new tie-dye shirt for my grandson as he’d out-grown his so I dug out the blank shirts and got busy doing some dyeing over the past few days. Really it’s amazing how many white shirts I have squirreled away in the closet. This is the last of the child-sized shirts but I have plenty of adult ones left. So I’m just going to photo bomb the blog and then write down the dyes used to make the shirts.

Group of shots of some of the tie-dyes in bags on the sunny deck and front porch. Even though the day wasn’t that warm the sun did it’s job.

  1. Those are amazing! What gorgeous colours ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ I was afraid after all these years the dyes might have faded but they still seem to work good as new. I’ve had them in the cool basement for storage.
