School holiday crafting

Tie-dyed t-shirts.
Thought the kids might enjoy getting involved ....

First, tie up your nice clean white t-shirts.
(The kids actually helped with this bit)


Dip half into the dye colour of choice



Give a bit of a stir every now and then


Once dyed, dip the other half in a second colour.

Admire the results



Untie those ties. (Not easy to do!!)


With a bit of help from Mum and Rosie


Soak in a salt bath



Hang on the line


Happy little people



Andi :-)

While I don't think I ever quite managed to pull off the tie dye look myself, those t-shirts are little rippers! And I thought I was brave setting 'em loose with the PVA and fabric last Friday...
