tie dye shirt tutorial series- criss cross pattern

TIE DYE SHIRT TUTORIAL SERIES: CRISS CROSS PATTERN

I love this tie dye pattern- it's very cool looking but is very easy to get.  This pattern was made with folding and rubber bands.  The criss cross pattern looks good in multiple colors or single colors too.  I've used dark blue teal, light blue, and a coral for this pattern.

TIE DYE WITH MODERN COLORS

I'm so excited to launch my Modern Tie Dye Kits.  They are so fun and fresh.  Each kit comes with dyes, 3 things to dye, supplies to tie everything up and a free tutorial video.  You will get enough dye to tie dye more than what's in the kit, so if you have some extra t-shirts or totebags you can tie them up too.  What's your favorite colorway?  I love them all but mine is Desert Sunset. :) Here's my latest video of the reveals.

MARBLING TIE DYE TECHNIQUE TUTORIAL

 I've been wanting to try marble dyeing for quite some time. I had some left over dye from my modern colors tie dye kit- click link to see.  So I broke out the shaving cream and got to work!  I love the way it turned out and can't wait to try it again.

MODERN TIE DYE TECHNIQUES TUTORIAL

I've been playing with a lot of tie dye lately.  I wanted to incorporate traditional shibori techniques with modern colors and tie dye.  So i decided to do a kumo shiobori tie and use my arctic waters tie dye kit as the dye.  It's a departure from the usual indigo and it's fun to branch out colorwise.  The kit is available here:

Ice Dyeing Procion Dye Color Combinations and Unboxing Video

Procion dyes are fiber reactive dyes that are very vivid and you can get beautiful saturation.  You can use them for tie dye and ice dyeing.  I think it's really fun to play with color combinations and I especially love the neutral colors.
