I think this will be a great project for the kids this summer while they are out of school for our next trip! Thanks for all the tips!

Your shirts are amazing!! I understand what you are saying about the pleats when you are doing the spiral. But can you please explain your die application. Are you making circles with you die and moving out? Thanks for your time.

I have read ALL THE WAY thru this thread. I've look at all the photos (that are still "live") and watched a video. I am using a colored shirt. I am wanting to use a single color dye. Has anyone done one of these in just ONE color? Any advice? I have the tie-dye supplies (I *totally* second whoever it was that uses Dharma for their stuff. LOVE their dyes and they sell some awesome ready to dye stuff other than t shirts!) already as I've done a few multi color projects in the past. Just not sure how the Mickey head will do with one color. And I've never done a stitched pattern thing before.

I saw a couple of families that were wearing these when on my honeymoon last year. I want to make some of our own. I'm thinking orange, green, and purple for Halloween, and red and green for Christmas. (And of course others too.) I loved seeing the pics. Can't wait to see how mine turn out!

Very cute! I like the embellishments you used. I stumbled across directions for a tied died mickey shirt on the disney family.com site today:
http://family.go.com/crafts/craft-10...tic-tie-dye-t/
The red white and blue is cute for the Fourth of July and they include a Mickey Head template and picture directions too.

hey all - I keep this page bookmarked for inspiration, but I just don't have the ambition to read all through to get one question answered...

I'm using Dharma dyes (fiber reactive procion) made with the recommended urea - I mixed up 2 cups of each of three colors, and ended up only using about 1/3 of each squirt bottle on my 7 shirts (2 kids, 5 adults). My question is - can I "keep" pre-mixed dye?

I have half a thought of dying some cotton muslin fabric to make a new Fish Extender, but I'm not exactly ready (haven't measured/cut/washed/tied) - can I stick the bottles of dye in the fridge or something?

I didn't find anything on the FAQ page on the Dharma website.

Anyone have any experience here?

one more random thought - the Dharma website (where I printed off the directions) says tie first, soda ash soak next, then dye.

of course, this makes for difficult wringing (the cinnamon-rolls are hard to squeese out) and probably explains why I used so little dye - the shirts were literally dripping dye probably because they were soaking wet of soda ash water.

anyone get good results with tie-soak-dye rather than soak-wring-tie-dye?

I don't know if I can wait 24 hours, I'm DYING (dyeing? lol) to see how these turned out. I did some a few years ago (red white & blue, as seen in my sig) - this time I went "caribbean" with two shades of blue and one green...

Last time I did them, I did soak, dry (my error), tie, dye (dry shirts = LOTS of Tulip dye and 3 trips to Michaels)...

They are kind of more white than I wanted (I think because they were too wet with soda ash water) but I am thrilled with the Mickey head definition!

Question

I've made the shirts for 3 of our last 4 trips. This time we are going to be there for the MNSSHP. Going with the Halloween theme, I wanted to use Halloween-ish colors. I am a Dharma zealot, so I am looking for specific colors from them. My initial thoughts are orange, purple and green, My wife is a traditionalist and wants the Mickey heads to be done with black dye. Thoughts from you all?

Tie Dye Question..

I know there are a lot of different ways to technically do this, but I found a kit clearanced at Hobby Lobby and picked it up. My question is what is the best thread / material to use to stitch the Mickey Head? I had originally thought fishing thread, BUT read that Dental Floss would be good as well but it had to be unscented...

Opinions? I will be working on these this weekend as we leave in 29 days
