I found a cute orange tie-dyed t-shirt on clearance for $3, and I'm wondering if I could somehow make the Mickey design on this in black without the dye getting spread to the rest of the shirt. I would like to make this for MNSSHP. Would this work?

Sweet Maxine, I don't know about that. Is there black dye you can buy? Also, I would use lots and lots of rubberbands to keep the black in the spot you want. Good luck.

Sweet Maxine - I don't know why this wouldn't work. Are the shirts 100% cotton? I would do all of the steps as usual - wash and dry without any fabric softener, trace, baste and band your mickey head. I believe that Michael's and Hobby Lobby both sell black dye from Rainbow Rock. Just be careful when applying.

Another thought would be to get dark color transfer paper and print a black mickey head on it and iron it on.

Karen,

The # of tie dye kits you need will depend on how many colors you want to use. I ended up buying 4 kits because my kids use liberal amounts of dye and they tend to use specific colors heavily. Luckily I have been using 40% off coupons at Michaels.

Yes, the shirt I have is 100% cotton. I didn't realize that black dye is hard to find. I don't live near a craft store, so if Wal Mart doesn't have it, I may be out of luck. Something else I thought about is the Mickey ears with your name stitched on it as a transfer. I will have to search for the thread that has the link for it, but it's a really cute site that will "stitch" your name onto Mickey ears. Someone posted the link for it about a year ago, so it may be hard to find.

Just an idea for the orange tye-dye shirt. How dark of an orange is it? I was about was thinking about using bleach to make the mickey head shape. Don't know if that would really work but a thought. Good Luck!

Anyone have a picture of the finished shirts, too? I've seen them on other threads, but I didn't subscribe. Now DD says this might be fun to try. She'd like to see one. Thanks.

I just wanted to add the Tie Dye instructions here b/c I refer a lot of people to this thread!!

Thanks for the pictures!!

Directions from Cojochurch
First you will need the dye. I got a kit at Michaels that came with the instructions, dye, squirt bottles, soda ash, gloves, and rubber bands. Get 100% cotton shirts. That is very important so that you get vibrant colors. Do not use Rit Dye – you will not get vibrant colors!

Take the shirt and draw a Mickey head in pencil, on the shirt. I made a pattern on paper first and then traced along the edge. You will then "sew" the pattern. Use a needle and thread. I got a waxed thread at Michaels to make sure it didn't take up the dye. Sew a 1/4" - 1/2" basting stitch along the pencil line. A basting stitch is a very simple stitch that goes up & down through the fabric. Only go through the front of the shirt if that is where you want the Mickey to be. If you want it on front and back. Do each side separately. After stitching along the complete line, knot it, and pull it tight, so the fabric gathers in a bunch. Make sure the inside of the Mickey is poking outward. Pleat the rest of the fabric, so that you have a long snake like tube. The more careful you are with pleating the fabric along the length of the shirt, the better the final result. Go easy, and take your time. Wrap a rubber band around the threaded bunch. The tighter the tie, the more defined the outline of the Mickey will be. Place remaining rubber bands in 1"-2" intervals along the rest of the shirt. It is a little hard to explain, but when you are done you will have a long snake. One end is the Mickey on front of shirt and the other end it the back Mickey. Through the middle is the rest of shirt (arms, neck etc.).

Then follow the instructions in the kit for preparing and dying shirts. The squirt bottles make it possible to get the specific color where you want it.

To help with bleeding use large yarn tie tight then rubberband .this will keep area tighter then just the rubberband and the yarn will soak some of the dye before bleeding through.

What type of Dental Floss do you use? I only have Mint and Cinnamon which are green and red. Will they work or will they bleed and mess up the whole thing?

Thanks for your help!

ReAnSt, that last shirt picture looks like a Stitch tie dye....not sure if you meant it to look like that as all your linked pictures look like Mickey heads. That is so neat though....if you did mean it to look like Stitch, how did you do it?

Great that means I did a good job since you can recognize It is Stitch. I have also done horse heads and some other shapes. Instead of tracing a mickey head shape. I printed out, then cut out a stitch shape, I then traced that onto the shirt, I then baste stitched the stitch shape and pulled it super tight just like the Mickey head.

I did everything the same as the Mickey head but used the stitch shape or whatever shape I wanted the design to be instead. I think stitch was the hardest one I have done because of the details around his body like the feet and his ears. I would suggest trying a mickey head first.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Becky
