I'm a visual learner...tie dye?
 
I'm planning to make some tie dye t-shirts for our trip in December, but I'm not "getting" it! I know to stitch the floss around a mickey shape and pull it to gather it. Do I do that on both the front and back? Once that's done, what do I do with the rest of the shirt? How do I go about applying the dye? Anyone have a more detailed description or photos of the process? Sorry to be such a dork!

GG-

Shriva has some photos of when it was done, but as of right now, I am unable to pull them up. They are on Post #5096 of the WDW T-shirt thread.

If they continue to not load, I will take some tonight when I do some more.

I think he deleted them as he left the t-shirt thread in a huff. Could you please take some more to help everyone out?

Thanks!

Denise,

I have taken pictures of the stitching and banding process, didn't take any of the dyeing yet.

I am more than willing to post these if you think they would help. They are currently on the photobucket site. I know a lot of people are having trouble accessing that. Should I copy them to the DIS photos? If so, how do I do that? I was proud just to figure out how to download from my digital camera and how to post on photobucket.

I'm not having any trouble with the Photobucket site. I would still probably do them there as there is a solution to get around it. Thanks for taking new pictures. Appreciate the time and effort it must be to do so! Can't wait to see them. I want to try it for our trip.

Here are the pics I promised
 
OK - Here goes:

1. Draw Mickey head on front and back of shirt
http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a1...r/PA050250.jpg

2. Baste just outside of pencil marks
http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a1...r/PA050256.jpg

3. Pull thread tight making sure all material poofs to the outside
http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a1...r/PA050258.jpg http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a1...r/PA050259.jpg

4. Tie off (keeping very tight) Mickey heads are on right and left - neckline showing to the top of picture, sleeve laying on top of shirt
http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a1...r/PA050262.jpg

5. Band around Mickey heads
http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a1...r/PA050266.jpg
Here is a close up you can see "ears" are smaller tabs, "head" is larger
http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a1...r/PA050265.jpg

Now is where it gets to be very personal. I wanted concentric circles around Mickey's head - like the pictures of my kids' shirt. Thus I just kept bunching the fabric in a tube and banding every couple of inches up to neckline and sleeves.
http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a1...r/PA050267.jpg

I then banded top of each sleeve
http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a1...r/PA050268.jpg
Then I banded the sleeves 1/2 down and banded down the bottom part of the shirt
http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a1...r/ccf300ff.jpg

To produce more of a white outline around Mickey head and to separate colors more, use more than one rubber band. The most recent shirts I have done have about 1" of banding around head. DD6 dyed her g-ma's tonight. We'll have to see how it looks tomorrow.

Additionally, some sites say to pleat before you band, or roll. To be honest, I pleated the first two and didn't like the way they turned out. Thus, I just started scrunching from then on.

Hope these help. If someone needs more pics, let me know. I still have at least 3 more shirts to go!

Looks great! Now will you take some of the dye process, etc, and then post the finished shirt?

DISMOMOF4 10-07-2005 12:38 PM

Thanks so much for the pictures!!! :) I showed the shirts to my mom and she wants to try them. Neither one of us could figure out the directions because we are both visual learners!! Now we can make our shirts for our Grand Gathering! :banana: :banana: :banana: :banana:


Please post more pictures as you complete your shirt. We will be waiting. :earboy2:

This is great and I really want to try this.....but I am also rather dense when it comes to this stuff. So the actual mickey part of the shirt you don't twist or anything just leave it puffed up and dye it?

DisneyArk 10-07-2005 02:34 PM

Disneyeveryyear,

Thank you so much for taking the time to take and post those photos!! That really helps me understand how to fold the shirt. I had been trying to figure out what to do with the sleeves. :goodvibes

Thanks again!! :wave2:

I didn't do anything else to the Mickey Head, just tie it off, band it, and dye it. It will scrunch when you pull the (I used dental floss).

More info. On the first shirt I used, I did not use enough rubberbands and the color ran onto the Mickey. I was able to salvage it. But for DH's shirt I used 10 rubberbands and the color did not run. Have fun.

disneyeveryyear 10-09-2005 05:40 PM

No wonder I can't get any white. The most we have used is 3 rubber bands. Haven't been able to keep colors from bleeding.
