Any advice? I would certainly appreciate it
I know you posted this awhile ago but i just saw a video as to why you put the dye on the back. You dye the whole shirt the normal way you would and then dye the back the same way then you go over the back with the black as the color before soaks into most of the places and when you add the black dye it goes into the white spaces. saw a video of the guy doing it and it works out great.

I've been away, so I apologize for the late response. Yes, I did it the same way. I just used an outline of Stitch instead.

Thanks, I'll have to give it a try. One year I tie dyed shirts and then used fabric paint to paint stitch on, but yours
look nicer.

]This weekend I attemped making my mickey tye dye shirts. I used a kit from Tulip and I know I have read that it isnt the best but it is what I was willing to spend.

Here is how I did my shirts:

I washed shirts and dried them (shirts were 100% cotton)

Sewed the floss around Mcikey head and then wrapped them up in rubber bands

Soaked them in warm water and soda ash for about 1 hour

Added dye and then wrapped them in saran wrap for a little over 24 hours

Then one by one I rinsed them in warm water and hung them to dry over night

This morning I washed them with a tiny bit of detergent and cold water

I think they turned out ok but I wished I would have made mickeys head a darker color. I am also not happy with the way the red turned out. I am thinking I am going to try and dye some again. I feel like I didn't get enough dye on the shirts. I thought I was putting too much but there is a lot of white on the shirts.

- Can someone direct me how to make the shirts more colorful? I tried the sprial wrapping and it worked great on the little shirt for the my son but the bigger shirts just didn't turn out the way I wanted. Please give any suggestions or advice. I want these shirts to be vibrant and stand out in pictures.

To add more color to your shirts, you need to squirt the dye into the shirt folds.

Maybe don't doo the spiral next time but do the long way.
here is a viedo. Instead of doing a hear, you are doing the mickey head.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HoppT...eature=related

So do the mickey head and the do the rest like the video says after his heart instructions.

I also make each of my rubber bands really tightly on each section. You can really just play around and do it how ever you want.

Well I tried a second time to tie dye and I used the Jacquard Tie Dye kit.... It is like night and day compared to the Tulip kit.

I love the new shirts that we finished tonight and cannot wait to wear them in November.

Uscgmouse those shirts look good. I should try that kit next time I want to dye. For my next batch, I was thinking of dying some shirts with a vinylmation outline.

The Jaquard kit I got was amazing. It was the larger one in a white box. It says up to 15 shirts but I made 4 and used all the dye. It was super easy and I watched the dvd that came with the kit. It helped.

Good Luck! I would love to see what you come up with!

We finished ours last night and they turned out really nice. I was a bit dissapointed with how much the color faded though. I'm not sure who made my kit, I got it at Hobby Lobby and it came with some twisty tube that I did not use. If I were to do it again I'd invest in a better kit.
