Jayme and I took a detour from quilting this past weekend.  We are both late blooming hippies...

We tie-dyed for the first time ever...what a mess, but lots of fun.
We used the same dress, but different techniques...this is the original dress.
Jayme folded her dress in half, drew a line across it, then fan folded it. Cool.

I did a traditional spiral. After applying the dye to the wedges I sponge brushed the whole thing with purple.  Groovy man.
We had a bit of dye left over so I grabbed a couple of old white t-shirts and tried a couple of other techniques.

My hands are still purple.

I hope you had fun!

My girls had an art teacher in Middle school, and at the end of each year, she had the kids tie-dye t-shirts. Of course, they tie-dyed more here. I think I even did one, but I swear I cannot remember it for the life of me!

That looks like so much fun! I used to do that with my kids each summer.
