sharpie tie dye

 

I've become a bit obsessed with pinterest lately...it is so fun to have a visual way to store all the wonderful things you come across online. One of the pins that caught my eye was this one that shows a tee shirt that has been dyed with sharpies and rubbing alcohol. I was curious so the kids and I gave it a try. I can't say our tees were quite as lovely as the inspiration, but we did have fun trying. With a little practice you can start to figure out different methods for getting the results you want. One thing I learned was that if you drip the alcohol in the center of the drawing repeatedly (rather than dripping it all over it) that the wet spot spreads and runs the color in nice concentric circles. I would definitely recommend trying this out on an old tee shirt or scrap of fabric first, rather than buying a nice new white one just for the project. You can find a more detailed tutorial here.
