How to Tie Dye a Hoodie

Black and Blue Hoodie Tie Dye Pattern

  1. Fill your blue one step tie dye bottle with warm water and shake.

  2. Create a tie dye pattern of your choice with your rubber bands. We created a swirl with our shirt and rubber bands.

  3. Dunk your rubber-banded hoodie in water to prepare it for dyeing. This will allow the dye to pull into your fabric better.

  4. Put on gloves. Add your blue tie dye to desired area.

  5. Wrap in cling wrap and let sit for 6-8 hours.

  6. Rinse out until water runs clear.

  7. Wash alone on cold cycle.

  8. Dry your shirt and enjoy!

Tie and dye is a crafting technique that is not going away anytime soon. This project is a how to so it comes with step by step picture aids and a video incase you prefer watching your instructions. This makes it perfect for a beginner so if you're new to this you might turn all your t-shirts into something fun for summer.

My grandkids and I tie dyed some tee shirts for the 4th of July last year and we had a lot of fun and they were so excited about them. I did not have any plastic wrap on hand so I used a plastic grocery bag to wrap them in which I read you could do. I left them in there 24 hours and then washed them and almost all the dye came out. I redid them and they were okay but did not look like they should. Should I have used only the plastic wrap? Does it make that much of a difference? I love the tie dye effect and have watched this video and will try it again. This is a good video and has some good tips too. If you are new to tie dying watch this video and then go have some fun. Great summer fun with kids or grandkids.

Good instructions, but.... it would have been helpful to have seen the finished product.
