Fun Tie Dye Shirt + GIVEAWAY

Happy Friday! It is Trish and Bonnie from Uncommon Designs again and we just can't thank SEI enough for allowing us to share some fun crafts with you this week!



Today, I want to show you how I took an ordinary white thermal underwear top and really jazzed it up with SEI's tumble dye tie dye kit. We chose the girly girl color scheme... how fitting! After all, every fashionable girl must have ultra-cool PJ's! Here is how I did it...


Supplies:
Shirt
Tumble Dye Tie Dye Kit
Stencil
Folder or Cardboard to go between shirt layers
Trash bag or plastic tablecloth


I cut a heart and an L out of some vinyl with my electronic cutter. You can do this method, use freezer paper, another type of stencil, or skip the heart step all together! With two little girls, it works for me to use a monogram to tell which shirt belongs to which rascal. I also placed a file folder inside the shirt to prevent bleeding.


Now for the fun part! If you have worked with tie dye before, it can be so messy and time consuming. Not with this kit! All I had to do was open the bottle, spray on the different colors, and let it air dry. Next, I lifted off the stencil and "scrunch" dyed the rest of the shirt. Here was the video I used for the "how to".


I was so glad that there was a video to go by and it was so easy to follow!


I just love how it turned out!

Slumber parties are such a huge deal in our home, so we had a ball with all of the goodies! Thanks again to SEI for having us!

We'd love for you to stop by and see us at Uncommon Designs! You can also find us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Google Plus. Take care!
