Tie dye result

My white tee shirt with a couple of tiny stains and a bit worn at the front is now revived for more wear. It is a bright tulip red, my current favourite from Dylon but limitations of the blackberry as substitute camera don't show this fully etc. I'd like to thank my local postie for giving me his red elastic bands when I asked as I'd run out of them. I went for a traditional circles tie dye which creates a different look for the back.

  1. The t-shirt looks great. I love tie-dye you have inspire dme to have another go. My son always asks for red bands from the postman and he usually makes a ball out of them!

  7. So precise? All my tie-dye attempts were about 50x messier than this.
