We are going July 4 week and I want to do four red, white and blue shirts. Any suggestions for using only two colors - besides the white shirt.

Can't wait to try them out. Everyones shirts look great.

Well, I just attempted a red, white and blue shirt today. Once I get it rinsed out and see if my technique worked I'll post what I did... I'm not too sure it's going to turn out though...

Has anyone tried doing tye-dye with a pack of Rit dye? I'm thinking about doing a single-color one. I'm inspired by the shirts one of the teachers made for her students for Field day - they were light and medium blue, the light blue being where the tee was "tied".

I forgot to ask her how she made them. Silly me! Any suggestions?

Ok - I might be wimping out on the tie dye red, white and blue tshirts for our July 4th trip. I just went on the Disney Shopping website and they have flag shirts with Mickey heads where the stars should be and they are 5.99 each. I am thinking I have too much to do before our trip and just might order these so there will be less pressure on me to get them completed.

I still want to try the tie dye shirts but I might order them just incase the ones I try to make do not come out good or if I just run out of time making four of them. We are going again in November so that would give me more time.

I will still be checking these boards though to see how everyones comes out and to give me courage to try it.

I've use both Rainbow Rock and Tulip dye kits. I find soaking in soda ash even if the kit doesn't call for it makes the colors brighter. Also, letting them sit in the dye for a good 12 to 24 hours helps. I've tried to use Rit dye to make a black Mickey head and the black faded a bit when it was washed...

My red, white and blue came out pretty good I think. Just make sure to wrap your rubber bands really tight and don't over saturate with red and blue or you won't have any white

Ok, I know this is silly but 1) wash the shirts and dry. 2) Draw Mickey head and baste, tie? 3)Soak in soda ash. 4) Tie up shirt and dye? Is this right? I just want to make sure I've got all the steps right.

I'd put in step 3.5: let shirts dry until just damp, THEN step 4.

I followed the instructions to tie then soak then squeeze the excess water out. Right. It was like trying to squeeze water from a stone! Plus, having all the excess moisture in the shirts made for a very messy time and I was never sure just how much of the dye was actually getting through all of the tight folds.

My other suggestion is to start with the yellow, then the other colors. That's what I'm going to do this next time.

Good luck!
