Truckloads of tie-dye

December 25, 2007

Nothing says Christmas (or April Fools’) like….

Every Christmas, we make many, many tie-dye shirts, because we have many, many nieces and nephews, plus a few friends in town that know that we do this.

And one year, for April Fools’, I was a “subcontractor” on a joke at Sun. Someone needed a whole sheet, tie-dyed, on short notice.

I had never dyed anything quite this large before, and I only had one chance to get it right.
Later, I prepared a “half-baked” presentation on how I did it, which (with minor enhancements) I exported to the web. If you decide to take this up as a hobby, almost everything you need can be had from Dharma Trading.

Rubber bands you can get from the office supply, plastic bags (which can be reused) and salt from the grocery store.
