We were recently sent a tie die kit by Fab Lab to review.
We bought some plain white t-shirts off amazon for about £2 a t-shirt to decorate. You can dye anything. T-shirts, hats, bags etc.
First you must protect all surfaces! Otherwise you will ruin fabrics, furniture etc.
Pop your protective gloves on (included) – these are child sized…. we used some of our own gloves for myself and hubby as we needed gloves too to help the girls.
Step 1: Soak your t-shirts in water, add water to your dies and lay your t-shirt out on a surface which is protected by a tablecloth or an old towel etc.
Step 2: Add your dye : you can twist and roll and add elastic bands to create different effects. There are some great ideas in the instruction booklet.
Step 3: Leave your t-shirt in a bag to soak in for 4-8 hours. Rinse in the sink. Then wash your items one by one in the washing machine & ta da they are complete and ready to wear.
What we thought: We had a great time creating these and the results were lovely. We would recommend this set as a great family activity, you get tons of dye so you could just use a few colours and save some for another day or go the whole hog and decorate lots of items, we decorated 5 t-shirts and could have easily dyed another 10. The girls love the t-shirts they have created and are wearing them as pyjama tops. K says our tops are better than the tops you can buy which are tie-dye.
Thanks to Wire Pr for sending us this kit to try. We received this #gifted in exchange for an honest review.
