Im having an idea - tell me if you think this will work. The dye the tshirt like normal - maybe "snake style" would work best. Measure out the top section to be about the size of your Mickey head and dye it the color you want your head to be. Then after the shirt is done, use a bleach pen and draw in the Mickey, essentially filling up the middle space.

I tried to do the sewing the Mickey in with dental floss but it never comes out right!

Leaving on the Fantasy 3 weeks from yesterday and I want to make red/black shirts for Pirate night - but not if they don't look good! Who can I hire to make them for me? LOL

Never having done this, I can't say it works, but I've been told by people they use those clorox pens to "clean up" around a Mickey head.

So Im thinking red and black for the Pirates in the Carribean night on our cruise. What if I wanted some white in there? Would I not die a "slice" or two? Would I not blend the colors so much.....although last time I attempted this I got too much white!

Hi everyone, I am a newbie and have been reading about all the fun you are having and the great ideas you have I went out and bought some supplies today (tulip dye kit, thats all I could find in my area) shirts, soda ash, gloves, etc. I will attempt this tomorrow wish me luck. A quick question: can I mix the dye in the bottles or do I have to mix them and then pour them into the bottles? Thanks in advance

OMG I must be the stupidest person on the planet! Im attempting to practice the spiral and its just not working. And when I think I get it, I can't get a rubber band around it without the whole thing falling apart. Maybe its because Im practicing with a dry tshirt. So frustrating! Id like to give it another shot and see if it comes out any better than my first attempt but this is making me nuts!

OK, last night I basted the mickey heads on 3 shirts, this morning I soaked them in the soda ash for 45 minutes and dyed them. It looks like a mess, dyes sort of ran into the other colors, but they are done! Can't wait til tomorrow to see the final products. I also threw in a pair of socks!
By the way, the tulip kit that I purchased said it would do 20 shirts, I did 2 adult, 1 child, and a pair of socks and used half of the kit....do you think I put too much dye on them, I was really trying to get in the folds.

Do I have to soak the shirts in soda ash - can I use baking soda??
You can also use Arm & Hammer washing soda. That's what I use because I can buy it in the laundry aisle at my local supermarket. It's sodium CARBONATE, just like the pool stuff/soda ash.

you might want to find some really big rubber bands - I got a big bag someplace that had an assortment but some where big enough to go around mythigh without streching so they worked great -- need to do this again, think boys & sister will do it

I have done regular tie-dye many times in the past but dont' have time for trip in three weeks and just stumbled on this today on pinterest. Anyone have any suggestions on how to modify this to get a mickey head on it? I love the idea and the way it looks at end, but I would want me a mickey on there!

Thanks for any suggestions

You could trace and baste and rubber band the mickey head...cover it really well with Saran Wrap...scrunch the rest of it up and paint it..then let it dry...dye the mickey head...let it sit overnight...then take out the rubberbands and rinse the mickey head out...should be what you are looking for!
