    Modern tie dye

    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!
