Tie Dyeing Old T-Shirt


Things you need:

Old cotton T-shirt

Large thread or rubber band

Cloth dye




First, wash a 100 percent cotton T-shirt.

Second, place the wet shirt flat on the work surface.

Next, tie knots in the T-shirt, or twist it and secure the folds with rubber bands or heavy-duty thread.

After that, mix 1/2 c. liquid dye (or 1 package powdered dye) in 1 lt. hot water.

Dissolve 5 tbsp. table salt in the mixture.

Fifth, let the mixture cool to room temperature.

Then, put the entire shirt in the dye and let it soak for at least 20 minutes.

Next, rinse the shirt in cold water until the water runs clear.

Then, undo the knots and rinse the shirt again.

Ninth, hang the shirt to dry, out of the sun.
