I'm having so much fun demonstrating for my Beginning 3-D students 
the art & craft of Tye-Dyeing.
Whether it's showing them the traditional patterns from the late 60's and 70's,
or the newer patterns that involve multiple layers of folding and wrapping.
It's all a blast!
So these are my paper demos. from this year.
And it seems that right now Tye-Dye has really made a come back in the fashion industry.

This summer I saw so many tops and dresses made from Tye-Dyed designs.

For me it's the unveiling that's the best and most satisfying part.

You just never know what you're gonna get,
and you are constantly thinking of new ideas to try.

And the second best part is that it's relatively inexpensive to do with a large class of kids.
And right now on Pinterest,
there are so many great tutorials and ideas.
Give it a try.
I recommend using Rit liquid dyes.


  1. Peace, love and tie dye ... used to say that a lot more back in the day, even though I never did any. I guess the Shibori I did yesterday was tied and dyed, so I've finally joined the party!

  2. I love these colors and patterns!!!
