Thanks Roxy and MagicMomma for the tips! I will try rinsing rinsing rinsing next time....and washing them twice! It is probably too late for these shirts because we have already dried them so the color is probably set.

Our Mickey Shirts

Here are our families Mickey shirts. We did this as a family project...we received a tye die kit for Christmas with directions to make these printed from this thread on the dis board. The one thing we did different is we basted through both layers of our shirts so that we have a Mickey head on both the front and the back. I also rinsed these out like crazy in the sink and then I put them on a quick rinse cycle in my wash machine BEFORE I washed the shirts and that really helped get the white parts of the shirt much whiter. I also added vinegar to the wash water to help set the dye...I figure if it works for easter eggs and my color clothes it will help with the shirts. This was fun and we are all thrilled with the results!

Dad's shirt with the swirl pattern:


Mom's shirt with the bullet pattern:


DD Ashlyn's shirt with the bullet pattern:


DS Seth's shirt with the swirl pattern:


DD Leah's shirt with the bullet pattern:


The shirts are packed away and we have 9 weeks to go...SO excited!!!

PixieDust32, would you mind sharing how you were able to get such complete coverage of color for these shirts? I have tie dyed a few shirts, but never have been able to get this kind of coverage.

Do you soak your shirts in soda ash before banding them so that you can squeeze out almost all of the liquid?

Do you use larger rubber bands so that they are not wound too tight?

Would love to hear your method for these

I've never tie dyed anything where you stitch and bast before, but I thought what the heck? Tie Dye isn't supposed to be perfect right?

Well, I think I did pretty well!

I seem to be having a problem posting, so hopefully this one will work. I keep posting but never see it showing up! Ugh! Anyway, here's my most recent batch of tie dye shirts. I was very pleased with how all 7 turned out. I didn't have to make any corrections or use a bleach pen on any of them!

Spart02, your shirts looks great and what an awesome job you did you the Mickey heads! I hope mine can turn out half as good as yours.

Did you tighten the rubberbands around the stitching just as tight as they would go? And how many did you use?

Also, I would love to know which colors you used. They look fabulous together

HI!

I don't have any special technique, I think its practice...To answer your questions..

Do you soak your shirts in soda ash before banding them so that you can squeeze out almost all of the liquid?
You have to soak them in soda ash for at least 45 minutes. Yes, after they're soak just wring them with your hands.

Do you use larger rubber bands so that they are not wound too tight?

Depending on the size of the shirt, for smaller shirts I use smaller rubber bands, you want them to be thing so you get pretty patterns, otherwise the dyes just spreads out all over.

thanks

lovespekes,
I soak in soda ash and wring it out by hand. I usually soak in the soda ash for a good 40-60 minutes. Then I go on to the dying.
As far as rubber bands go, I do put them on pretty tightly and usually try to get about 3/4" on adults shirts and 1/2" on children's shirts. I usually try to use thicker rubber bands so I don't have to put on tons and tons. I think I used at least 4 rubberbands per shirt...maybe even more. I don't like making any corrections with the bleach pens, so I would rather have a bigger ring of white around the heads than to chance it with using fewer rubber bands.
I used Dylon "Bahama Blue" and "Ocean Blue", which I think was cute b/c our upcoming Disney cruise is to the Bahamas! Good luck with your shirts! Please post pictures when you're done!

I was so excited to open my box yesterday from Dharma but the excitement quicky changed to disappointment. I discovered I ordered soda ash...which I already had....instead of urea.

Now to decide if I pay shipping for just the urea or to do the shirts without

I was all set to get my shirts started today.

What would you do? Pay the high price of shipping just for the urea or just do the shirts without it?

Dang!!!!!!

Never Order soda ash from Dharma, the shipping is brutal. They had a shipping code for half of shipping but I think it expired.

You can find soda ash in home depot, wal mart, lowes etc. Is called PH up/ Sodium Carbonated.

See how much will cost you for the urea, the smaller bag. Sorry. I know the shipping is brutal specially if you live on the east coast. I don't know why they don't ship priority flat rate boxes, it would be so much cheaper but I guess they want to make money on shipping too.

I finished a batch of t-shirts last night, and I was surprised to discover this problem when I took them out of the wash: not all of the pencil I used to mark the Mickey head came out. I've done these t-shirts before and it's always come out.

What do you think would be the best way to get it out? I tried a regular pencil eraser but that didn't do anything. I don't want to mess up the dyes.

Thanks!

Finished dying shirts and it is time to rinse them. What is the best way to go about rinsing the dye out? Do I need to cut the bands off and then rinse or do I start rinsing first? O Please help!
