Tie-dyeing was all the rage
in the late 1960s and early 1970s,
identified as the hippie style.
The look is accomplished by folding the material into a pattern, binding it with string or rubber bands and applying dye to only parts of the material. The ties prevent the entire material from being dyed.
You can recreate the tie-dye look easily with fabric paint . . . really, it is all in the folding . . . you don't have to mess with all those chemicals if you don't want to! Click here for the tutorial :)
There are so many patterns and
techniques when it comes to tie-dye!
