swirl tie dye
|Pinch and twist
Before beginning, read the Tie-Dye how-to instructions and refer back to them for standard steps.
Prewash fabric to remove sizing. Do not use fabric softener or dryer sheets.
Cover work surface with a plastic tablecloth.
Lay fabric flat on work surface. Decide the area on the fabric where you want the swirl to be. Pinch fabric at this point. Twist fabric around into a flat spiral.
Bind with rubber bands, creating 6 wedge shapes. Use more rubber bands as desired.
Apply Dye on wedges using as many colors as desired, in the desired arrangement – alternating wedges, connecting wedges, etc. or use a single color.
Cover fabric with plastic. Let set 4 to 6 hours. Remove rubber bands.
Fill washer to large load setting with hottest water suitable for fabric and a small amount of non-bleach laundry detergent. Wash and dry separately.
