Hello fellow LACE people,
Hope everyone had a good week!!
My grand-daughter Lisa had a theme party to go to last week ----- the theme was 'hippie' and she wanted to wear tie-dyed clothes. She couldn't find any ---- so she asked me if I could help her dye some T-shirts.
I said I would supervise her doing the dying ---- she was excited and happy about that. (btw she's 20yo)
First we prepared the T-shirts.... we wanted circles and stripes....
We next perpared the dye baths.....we used 5separate colours
By dipping the pouched areas only in the different dyes she achieved circles
Lisa did the other shirt by making a 'sausage' and putting the bands dwn the length of the shirt
She then bent the shirt in a 'u' shape at each band -------and dipped each band into a different colour
Lisa was verry thrilled with the results !!!!!!!
This is Lisa wearing one shirt to the party and showing off the other shirt..
Her friends were impressed that she had done the tie-dying herself
It was good to be able to pass a skill on to another grand-child
We both enjoyed ourselves immensely.....
Thanks for sharing our fun afternoon
