Do you want to learn to tie dye? Have you tried it and gotten results that are washed out, too white, muddy brown or just plain ugly? As the Tie Dye Diva, I have created and sold my boutique-style tie dye for years. My shop was a success, but I have hung up my dye-splattered apron for the last time and and I am ready to share my tips for tie-dyeing. You'll learn the basics of tie dyeing from choosing tees, folding, tieing, mixing dyes and creating custom colors, to applying the dye and curing and washing out. I'll show you step by step how to create two beautiful and popular tie dye patterns: perfect boutique hearts and Best Friends rainbow tees. You'll then use my idea gallery of included photos to make other designs and shapes from the techniques you've learned, and there's a new BONUS section on tie dyeing spirals!

You'll learn how to get that perfectly shaped heart, make a nearly-solid background, how to control stray splatters and bleeds, and how to cure and wash out for a bright, bold, long-lasting effect. The Best Friends tees were a best seller for me, and now I am sharing exactly how to make this adorable matched set of rainbow tees with you.

Tie dye is fun for groups, even with children, or make some for yourself, or start your own tie dye shop! You are not limited to tees - dye bibs, pants, socks, dresses, skirts, anything washable that is made of 100% cotton (or at least 50% cotton, but lower percentages will be lighter in color).

Just like my sewing patterns, this 28-page tie dye tutorial is full of step-by-step full color photos and helpful explanations and tips. A computer-drawn heart folding template is included, as well as a section on where to buy dyes and chemicals (it doesn't have to be online!).

This tutorial is for creating professional grade tie dye with fiber reactive (Procion MX or Procion MX-type) dyes. I'll tell you where to buy them, how to use them safely, and how to get beautiful results. For best results, I do not recommend that you use RIT or other craft kit dyes with these techniques.

Your tie dye tutorial will be delivered via instant download immediately upon purchase. You will need Adobe Reader to view it. No paper copy will be mailed.You are not purchasing an actual tie dye item or a kit, but a PDF file that teaches you how to tie dye your own heart and rainbow tees.
