Project Description

Summer is here so I created some fun tie-dyed graphic tees similar to the ones you will see in stores.

Prep, dyeing & Rinse time: About a weekend

Rit Products Used

 

You'll Also Need

  •   plastic bin

  •    heat and bond

  •    cotton t-shirts

  •    white cotton fabric

  •    iron

  •   rubber bands

Step By Step

  1. I added very hot water to a plastic bin and poured in the aquamarine liquid dye. Next I pulled several points of the t-shirt and wrapped with rubber bands. I immersed the shirt in the dye but left the points out. I used the same method to dye the yellow t-shirt using Lemon Yellow Liquid Dye.

  2. I used Lemon Yellow ColorPerfect Dye with the squirt top to dye the points. I let the material soak for 10 minutes then rinsed with cool water. Finally, I washed it on the gentle cycle and let air dry.

  3. Next, I used the same method to dye white cotton using Fuchsia and Purple Liquid dyes. Then I dyed 3 more pieces of the white fabric using Black, Yellow, and Cherry Red Liquid Dyes. I followed the same finishing method listed in Step 2.

  4. Next, I ironed the cotton fabric, then ironed on the heat and bond material following the directions on the packaging.

  5. I then trimmed off the excess fabric.

  6. Using my Silhouette Cameo I created a stencil.

  7. I traced the stencil backwards on the paper side of the fabric and cut the pieces out.

  8. Next, I set the pieces out on the shirt to determine position and design.

  9. I peeled off the backing and used a dry, warm iron to attach the pieces to the shirt.

  10. The shirt is ready to wear.

  11. I followed the same method to create the Love shirt.
