so basically… I had to have a tie dye party!  It was fun cause everyone wanted to try a different technique! tie dye white t-shirts

Here are the three I did… bullseye tie dye technique crumple tie dye technique spiral tie dye technique

You can go HERE to see alllll the fun ways to get different results. Here is my word advice….Use lots…I thought I was getting the whole thing covered in my spiral blue shirt…but once I opened it…it wasn’t fully covered! We still love how I looks…but in case you want it solid with color!

I followed the instructions and let it sit for a few hours and then washed.

 

After the shirts were washed and dry it was time to add some iron on vinyl! I picked some from designs…Son chose a superman one (thus the blue shirt) and the girls wanted hearts! I cut it out with my silhouette cameo. When cutting heat transfer you cut the back side of the vinyl (so you flip the design horizontal)

and then weed…(pull away the vinyl isn’t part of your design.)

The awesome part about heat transfer vinyl is that it’s not super sticky…so you can place and replace it until you have it perfect. superman shirt See the plastic sheet over the s? That’s the carrier sheet. (That’s why you cut through the backside…this is what you iron on)

Press each spot for 15 seconds and once the whole design has been pressed you can peel up the plastic sheet! heat transfer vinyl
