So the hanes shirts... Unisex

Another question, how long does the dye keep for. I found a kit by tulip at walmart that is on clearance and the dye comes in the squirt bottles and you add water. Now would this only be good for one application and I would need to dispose of it - or would it keep for a certain amount of time?

I showed my husband (who is not a huge disney lover) and he is excited to try and make these with me! Yay!!

We don't go to the World until December and I want to do christmas type shirts for our MVMCP at least......and maybe a camo one and possibly a bleach type one. I'd like to find a little cuter shirt for me and not the generic men's tshirt style
Yay! Glad someone else is here! Lol* Look forward to seeing your shirts. I'm so jealous you're going in December though - we are going in Sept, and I'm thrilled, but I have my heart on some day getting to see all the lights.

This is my first experience dyeing so I dunno for sure, but what I've read on the tie dye threads on here is that after 45 minutes the dye begins to lose intensity. So once you mix the Tulip colors you have to use them right away. I do not know if the same is true when you use Jaquard or Procion dyes from Dharma Trading. I'm hopin' and a prayin' my t's come out good because I want to try those dyes sooooo soo so badly!!! I have heard about them for years (for hand dyeing fabric for quilting) but hadn't tried yet...now I have an EXTRA excuse!!!

Hahaha, I don't think tie dye ever really went out did it? LOL* Maybe it's just me because I was raised by hippies...

For shirts I highly recommend jiffyshirts.com. Tons is brands, styles and sizes to choose from! I've ordered from them 3 times and never had a problem.

Yay! My t-shirts are in the washer - they turned out SO SO SO cute! I bought a bleach pen but I don't think I'm even going to use it. Wooheeee! Only thing I did was accidently cut a teensy hole in one when I was cutting the string - POOH! I can't believe I did that! Anyhow I was thinking of using the gem stones to cover it up - any recommendations? Could I just hot glue them buggers on there and hand wash the shirts in the future?

Here's my first attempt. Not bad, but not great. Learned some things, and will make attempt #2 tonight.

1) I used the "Caurosel" Tulip Kit. Didn't purchase the soda ash, since another post mentioned it was in the dye powder already.
2) Used the Tulip Dye Resist, and painted on the Mickey outlines. (Make sure you use a paint brush and make the lines thick!) Let this dry for 24 hours.
3) I wanted pastels, so I dumped out the dye powder that was in the bottles (into ziplock bags for another batch), and then only put back in about 1/3 of the dye powder into the bottle.3
4) I wanted Mickey to be a darker purple, so I only filled the purple bottle halfway with water. I dyed the Mickeys first, then after I bagged those with plastic, filled the purple dye bottle up with more water so the purple would be a pastel like the fushia and teal.
5) I only left the dye on for 3 hours (okay, I admit it, the wait was killing me!), and received a nice shade of light pink, blue and purple. (They came out more like baby pink and baby blue.)
6) I obviously didn't fill in the larger Mickey enough, and put too much on the smaller one! Going to try and fix that tonight and just dab on some more purple into the larger one.

So excited to see your shirts but the pic isn't working

PumpkinpatchQuilter: I loved your outfit! Isn't the waiting the hardest part? I found a tie-dye kit in my closet (I had forgotten I purchased that a couple years ago to give to my step-daughter for christmas that year)....but I really don't have suitable shirts to dye at the moment. I love the website someone posted earlier (jiffyshirts.com)....I think I'm going to order a long-sleeve and short-sleeve white shirts for hubby and I (we're going in december so may be happy to have a long-sleeve shirt)! I'm going to make a camo/neutral shirt and a christmassy shirt for dh and myself and a few more fun ones for me.

What color do you think I should make the christmassy ones? I hate relying on the typical red and green.......do they make metallic dyes? I have some colors saved in the dharma cart....i'll have to look at those again.

And Craftychick, we want to see your shirts!

Thank you SO much!!! Holy cow, YES, waiting is SO TOUGH!

This is my total first attempt so I don't know if they make metallic dyes - maybe? I really like the whole red and green tie dye personally but you could maybe do more modern colors like a bright red or even pink and a lime green or something? I don't know if that's your thing...also I was looking up tie dye and saw somebody used blue's and did snowmen!!! How cool!

Good luck with Jiffyshirts, can't wait to see how you like them, please report back!
