It’s time for another summer craft! Are we already halfway through summer? Yes. Is that going to stop us? No way! Especially if tie-dye is involved.
It’s been a month since my last DIY project because I spent the first half of this summer on lots of shop updates for all three of my stores. Things are looking really cleaned up and awesome, and I even became a Star Seller in my Rin Out Loud shop. In order to qualify, I had to hit a sales goal, get great reviews, and ship things quickly. Which really just means that everyone who shopped with me in the last 3 months loved what they were buying! So honestly, the credit goes to my awesome customers. Thanks everyone!
Okay, so back to the blogging. As I said, I have 2 tie-dye projects for you this month. Today’s project is a traditional tie-dye project, whereas the next one involves paint. Just gonna leave that little teaser right there for ya.
I started off with a plain old white sweatshirt and a pastel tie-dye kit. I laid the sweatshirt flat and scrunched it from top to bottom to get the striped look. Then, I used the green, blue, and purple colors. Following package directions, I let the color sit, then washed and dried it.
Next, I created a cute little *aesthetic* graphic (that’s what the kids call it these days, right?) to put on it. Since this sweatshirt is for my daughter, we came up with a design together. I think it turned out super cute! The funky letters and little chunky loaf of challah really go well together. I used my Cricut to cut out the image on heat transfer vinyl, but you can also use a stencil to paint directly onto the fabric with fabric paint.
