Hi boos! So like, have you heard?! TIE-DYE is backkkkk! I’ve found many cute tees and sweatshirts BUT they keep selling out SO fast. Then I had a thought… why not do an at home DIY tie-dye sitch?! I mean the last time I did it I was probably 12 years old, so it couldn’t be that hard! Right?!! I’m here to tell you, it’s not. AND you probably already have everything in your home. No kit needed – I made my dye using food colors! 😉
I did a little test round earlier this week using one of Ford’s white onesies. It turned out v cute. I think next time I’ll add a bit more dye. Scroll down to see pics.
See below for a list of what you need and steps to make your own tie-dye beauty!! If you’re around this weekend Gaby, from What’s Gaby Cooking, and I will be doing an Instagram Live DIY. We are not professionals, BUT we sure are going to have fun tie-dying with y’all! Buckle up, it should be fun!
What you will need
White item you’d like to tie-dye: shirt, sweatshirt, onesie, etc.
Large plastic bowl or bucket
1/2 Cup of white vinegar
1/2 Cup of salt
Small squirt bottles (you could use old shampoo bottles)
Food coloring – I used pastel colors that’s why mine is lighter
Large zip lock bag
 Put on your gloves.
 Take the item you are going to tie-dye and rinse with water. Place in plastic bowl or bucket.
 Pour 1/2 Cup of white vinegar into bowl/bucket and move around evenly on shirt. Let it soak for 30 minutes. This is prepping your item for the dye.
 Wring out your shirt and take it out of your bowl/bucket. Place it flat on your cardboard.
 Tie your elastic bands around the fabric to create the tie-dye design you would like. There are multiple options. The easiest way is to roll the shirt long ways and tie 4+ bands around it, spaced how you’d like. See my image below.
 Place 1/2 Cup of water and 8 drops of food coloring into a squirt bottle to create the dye. Shake well to mix water and coloring. Repeat in different squirt bottles with all of the colors you’d like to use.
 Take your different dye colors and squirt onto the shirt in desired areas. Flip and repeat.
 Place your shirt in a large plastic bag and secure.
 Let it sit overnight for 8 hours. Then remove it from the bag and take off elastic bands. Pour 1/2 cup of salt and water into a large bowl/bucket. Place the shirt in the salt water for a few minutes to set the dye.
 Rinse your shirt multiple times in the sink until the water runs clear. Wring it out and hang to dry.

F A M I L Y // What a difference a year makes... ❤️ From pregnancy to a home birth and now having my little Fordy by my side each day. It’s been the biggest blessing especially in this crazy time. Motherhood has taught me so much but most of all, to slow down and cherish each moment❤️ We’ve all been given the gift of TIME together in 2020. I asked you guys what are some positive things that have come from quarantine and the Covid world we are living in. Most if not all responded with, TIME with my family❤️ How special is that? Sending out much love to all of you who have decided to see this year as an opportunity for family, connection and love❤️
