Trend: Tie-Dye

Groovy, colorful, and cool; tie-dye is back in a big way! This style is not just for kid's slumber parties or summer camp anymore. Grown-up, fresh tie-dye pieces are being spotted everywhere right now as crafters and fashionistas alike rock this psychedelic trend.


Tie-Dye Methods

What's great about this style is you can really make it your own. There are tons of tie-dye techniques to choose from, from the classic swirl to splatter to folds! Use rubber bands or string to make circles, or crumple up the fabric for a more organic look. Try leaving parts of the fabric white to really make the colors pop, or use the same color throughout. 



No matter which method you chose, tie-dying is easy, fast, and fun! It's the perfect activity for a sunny weekend at home, and aren't we all looking for more great things to do at home right now?




Ditch the expensive tie-dye kits! All you need is SoSoft™ Fabric Paint and some rubber bands and you're on your way to creating tie-dyed projects of your own. Simply add water to thin it out and use it as a dye. This paint is specially formulated to stay soft to the touch. Even after repeated washing, SoSoft™ Fabric Paint does not fade. Experiment with different color combos, tie-dying isn't supposed to be a perfect process. Have fun and let your creativity flow!


New Ways to Tie-Dye

Tie-dye isn't just for t-shirts! Add a 60's feel to some old tea towels, a scarf, or turn fabric scraps into a boho door hanger with this easy method.





Splatter Paint

Still looking to get colorful? Try splattering paint for a fun effect! Kids love this technique, and it works well on fabric, canvas, or any other surface you want to decorate.
