dip dye fabric tutorial


Dip dyeing is such a beautiful and simple technique.  Another name for dip dyeing is ombre.  Ombre is having a moment when it comes to hair dyeing and nails- but its also possible to do it on fabric! It's simple but a little tricky.  I takes patience but it's worth the time and effort.

Nail Head Shibori Indigo Dyeing Tutorial

This is a really fun pattern to make.  It can be as difficult as you want it to be and as easy as you want it to be.  You can make the nails very close together or farther apart.  I made my nails between 2-3 inches apart.  I made sure to tie the string around the nail head very tightly and wrapped around the nail head multiple times before tying it off.  I did this for each nail until I covered the entire piece.  I recommend doing this while watching your favorite show or movie.
