When I initially signed on to do a sponsored post with Rit dye, I thought I would demonstrate a new way to use the dye like a funky costume or some outdoor decoarations, but after thinking about it, instead I decided to show a new way to display everyone’s favorite way to use fabric: tie dye.
Autumn is the perfect time of year to break out the tie dye. Tell me you don’t see where I am going here…
Yes, tie dye is beloved by Phish loving hippies the world over, bless them, but it’s also beloved by people who know a good thing when they see it.
- It is really hard to take pictures while wearing rubber gloves.
- There are endless varieties of colors and patterns you can achieve with various tie-dye techniques. Rit has great information about this online. Consult with them and the directions on the package for specifics, but I can assure you it is easier than you think. Just don’t let yourself get hooked on a visual in your mind before you start the process. Embrace the unpredictable.
- One cotton flat sheet
- Half a bottle of Tangerine Rit Fabric Dye
- Half a bottle of Scarlet Rit Fabric Dye
- 20 rubber bands
- One large pot of simmering hot water
My favorite expression; Candles are like panty hose for your house, they make everything look good.
*Note: I wrote this post as part of a paid campaign for RIT Dye and Blueprint Social. All opinions are my own. I have been buying Rit dye in the laundry isle of my local grocery store for 20+ years and have always been pleased with the results. If you have never tried fabric dye at home, I suggest you grab some rubber gloves and a bottle (or box) or Rit. Prepare to be amazed!
