Tie Dye for Two

I learned how to dye in college and have been a loyal purchaser from the Dharma Trading Company for the past 15 years. I am working on a few dyeing projects for an upcoming dance performance (more on that later) and my offspring were curious and inspired. Since we had a couple of white t-shirts left over from another project, we decided to spend a day or two exploring tie dye.

Here are the two mad scientists at work...

... note the rubber gloves of the littlest participant. The gloves were VERY important... no matter how large.

The finished t-shirts laying out to dry. We only did two dye baths... that seemed to fit the attention span available.

Miss E did these great circles at the bottom of her t-shirt.

Now that the tree pollen season is here, I am hoping to do more sewing since I can't safely be outside without exploding into a sneezing, sinus swelling fit.... I know, I say I'm going to sew and post more every month. I feel like if I keep saying it, eventually it will happen.
