Tie Dyeing and Fabric Dyeing

While stationed in Germany with the Air Force, my best friend and I got t-shirts for volunteering to help with the Special Olympics. Soon after that, we tie-dyed the shirts. Soon after that, we wore those shirts to a unit picnic. Soon after that, we were ordered to report for urinalysis testing.

Whether you're a drug-addled hippie freak, or just don't get enough chances to pee in a cup, tie-dyed shirts rock. And now, thanks to this site, you can learn how to do fabric dyeing without the enormous amount of waste that most techniques seem to generate. Follow that link for color recipes, step-by-step methods and much, much more.

1 Or you could take a dyeing class a Springwater Fiber Workshop in Alexandria. They need volunteers to dye wool for their shop as a fundraising item. Dye Days are good stuff and they might have another set of them in July.

They also have a low immersion dyeing class involving a lot of microwaving. You might like that one.
