Dyeing

We're enjoying some summer family time together: tie-dyeing t-shirts.

Wringing out the rubber-banded bundles.

Mixing the different colors together.

Applying the dye.

Forgetting to wear gloves while applying the dye! (Even Grandma's hands got covered!)

Leaving shirts out overnight. We'll see the surprises tomorrow...

Looks like fun, and I'm glad to see others forget to wear gloves--I figure it makes me look artistic, haha.

That's fun activity! Will you show us a photo of the kids wearing their t-shirts?

I received your package yesterday.... thank you so much!! It was great seeing all that stuff :) I'll let you know when I made something with it!

Fun! I have that same kit and shirts ready and waiting but haven't done it yet...I keep waiting, knowing we are going to make the biggest mess ever. ;) Excited to see how they turn out!

I always forget gloves, too ;) Love the squirt bottle idea, fabulous!!! We received the streamers today, btw - thanks so much!! Our daughter has me convinced to decorate the house for our wedding anniversary coming up in a little over a week ;)
