This was my first time tie dying so I did a little experimenting the day before. Yes, the day before...dumb idea to wait until the last minute, but so it goes. I was only going to have red and blue colors to make things more simple. I tried out both the Rit and Tulip brand soaking dyes, but found the Tulip One Step Tie Dye to be the best and easiest dye to use. I bought several refill packets of the red and turquoise colors (the blue seemed too dark), which mixes quickly with water in a plastic bottle, gave them a good shake and we were good to go.
After dyeing, each person would put their garment in their labeled zip-close bag and hang it on a clothes line. We had 30 projects all together!
We really had a blast and I even though this party was not necessarily on my summer project list, I am so glad I took the time to make this happen. Great memories were made that will last forever.
