Christmas Tie Dye Mickeys...done for MVMCP!

I really love tie dying and wanted to share my Christmas version of tie dye Mickey shirts. I do a bit different version, which gives a more stripey look on the arms and hood. Thanks for letting me share. After all the hours I put into them, I had to "share" them with someone. Who better than my DISer friends!!




Here is what the back looks like! I really love the stripes on the hood.




Here is an adult one!



And the back!



And finally all 6 of them!!



Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we will wear them to the Party on 11/20!!

They are great. I like the striped look.

I can't seem to get white around my Mickey heads. I like that yours show up so well!

Thank you!! I've 'cheated' a couple of times but I'm still doing great.

http://www.etsy.com/

An Etsy store is for handmade things, like an online store. Sort of like ebay (you can have a 'store' on ebay also) but better and only for things handmade.

Those are GREAT!! Love them!! We were supposed to go this Nov.to check out WDW for xmas, but dh lost his job and there is just no way we can afford to go now. I would love to make these though for when we do go (hoping for next year) -- how do you make them to get the mickey shape in the middle?

First, THANKS for all the nice comments....secondly, I would never be able to sell them...too much time to be worth it. But, I love doing them and would love to share the process of how to do it. I know there are some other threads that have great descriptions too.

It's actually pretty easy, just use dental floss to stich the design on the front.



When you are done, cinch it all up tight and knot the ends of the floss.



Rubberband very tightly around the Mickey head shape.



This is what they look like all rubberbanded and ready to dye.




Let me know if you need more specifics about prepping the fabric and dye etc...I would love to share so you can make your own.

Next, I am going to tie dye some fabric backpacks...I might try the swirl designs for them.

I made these for our last trip up there.. wore them on the plane and the bit of time we had before it closed that night. I think I'll do the same thing for this trip.

I like how the color around yours turned out better.. mine had alot of white. They got tons of compliments though! Here is a picture of mine



the 2 on the right were dresses for my little one's.
