Looking for Tie Dye Diva sewing patterns? See my main shop link here:

Learn to tie dye like a pro! My How to Tie Dye instructions eBook shows how to dye perfect heart and rainbow designs. New bonus section on how to tie dye spirals! 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.

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 with you. You'll learn how to fold and dye 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. You'll then use my idea gallery of included photos to make other tie dye designs including shapes like fish, stars and more.

Have you tried tie dye and gotten results that are washed out, too white, muddy brown or just plain ugly? My techniques troubleshoot all these issues for 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).

Your tie dye tutorial will be delivered via instant download immediately upon purchase.

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.

What you'll need: This tutorial is for creating professional grade tie dye with fiber reactive (Procion MX or Procion MX-type) dyes. They won't fade, run, or bleed when you are done. You will also need some other ingredients for the reaction, like soda ash, which you can buy at ay hardware or pool supply store or pool supply section of a big box retailer. Almost everything else you already have at home. I'll tell you exactly what you need, where to buy it (it doesn't have to be online!), how to use dyes and chemicals safely, and how to get beautiful results. I do not recommend that you use RIT or other craft kit dyes with these techniques.

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.
