Dye in Style DIY Round Up

10

Ok, so you’ve probably heard about dip dyeing. The technique has been around for ages, but it’s picked up a lot of steam in the past few years with the resurgence of the DIY movement. We actually LOVE to dip dye at M&J, and one of our upcoming Halloween DIYs features the method! But since we’re holding the Trick or Trims RIT Dye Giveaway, we thought you might need a few more dyeing options with all of that RIT Liquid Dye you might receive. Here are a few of our favorites.

Swell Mayde Tie Dye Pants

These tie-dye jeans by SwellMayde are awesome! She used a sponging technique to get that abstract pattern. We wonder what this would look like using greens and taupes. Tie-dye camo anyone?

Playful Learning All Natural Dye

Want to know how to get a yellow this bright? Look in your spice drawer! Turmeric, and other natural items, were used to dye these clothes. Just make sure to wash them thoroughly after dyeing. Your nose might not be able to handle it otherwise!
Sharpie Tie-Dye Rookie Mag
This is a quick tie-dyeing fix for hippies on the go! Marlena from Rookie Mag made this t-shirt with a couple of Sharpie markers. We call shenanigans because this looks way too cool to take only a few minutes and some Sharpie markers.
Shibori Dye Method Honestly WTF
Shibori, the dyeing technique used in Honestly WTF’s dyeing tutorial, is an oldie but a goodie. But it’s like a REAL oldie. This method dates back to 8th century Japan. Some things never go out of style.
Batik Dye Wreath Tapestry from Kelli Murray
Sometimes it isn’t the dye that makes something fantastic, it’s the LACK of dye. This awesome wall hanging uses the batik method to create the negative space image above. Kelli Murray gives some great tips for those foraying into batik!
Have you used any of these methods before? Let us know which ones and what the results were below! And if you haven’t entered our Trick or Trims RIT Dye Giveaway yet, what are you waiting for?!

    We did the Sharpie one with a group of developmentally disabled adults at work. We put foil covered cardboard inside the shirts & let them draw their designs. We had the alcohol in spray bottles and sprayed it instead of dripping or pouring it. The designs came out amazing & everyone was so proud of their work! It was beautiful to see.
