Here they are. The first more white ones were the batch I did the other day that I wasn't happy with (as far as the swirling) so, I did them again after watching some youtube videos.

What do you all think about the bleach pen. Do you think it is ok without? I am a bit concerned about the little one on the 'full color version' with the green mickey.

I see that your sprials came out way better on the second batch. The colors are perfect. Now abou the bleach you have to be very careful when you trace it.
You can practice on a piece of cloth of rag, if you have an old t shirt you can cut it and practice before you do it on the shirt and see how much pressure would you need to apply and how long does it take to show.

Piper, what did you do different from your first batch to your second? Your swirls are awesome!

It looks like she add it more dye into the folds like I always recommended.

Sticking the bottle nozzle into the folds would do it.

There is the "ah" moment. I get it now. I am going to make more of an effort next time to do that.

Yep! We all have those 'aha' moments that's how we learn. Good Luck!

I decided to just leave them the way they are...for now. We leave Friday afternoon and I have enough on my plate at the moment so, I will be happy with Mickeyblob. It is almost a hidden Mickey!

AlexWyattMommy, yeah, I did kind of try to squeeze more in. The major thing was in the first batch I was leaving some white spaces between the dye thinking it would accentuate the spiral but, it did the opposite. I also made larger 'pie pieces' instead of many smaller sections. The black/green/blue ones only had one section of each. I think I like a bit smaller sections better.

I also thought I put a lot of rubber banding around the ears but, I could have definitely done more. They may have not been tight enough too.

Thank you. Hearing about the first hand experience does help. The more advice the better.

reverse tie dye



I did not want to deal with dye so I thought of the idea of doing a reverse tie dye. I did the same directions with the basting and used jean thread. I soaked it in a 4:1 bleach mixture for around 15 minutes. This was an old 100% cotton tank top I had a weird smell that I was going to throw away that is now saved. Now going to do another shirt that I original wanted done. I might put some rhinestones around the face to bling him up more! I might make one for DF, it's a 50/50 chance of him wearing it.

The light blue and dark blue [looks like black] are still my favorite combination.


Did you make all those today?
