Like the lifespan of a butterfly, the summer term is flying to it’s end.  For Bella’s class it’s quite a poignant time as her year get re-mixed into different classes for September so after three years together it’s a real time of change.  As a little hurrah for the mums of her 2B class I held a Shibori tie-dye day..with all the essentials….

Is that a stick I see before me?

Our patriotic dye bath..previously used for mixing concrete for the patio.  The union jacks come from cut up passport covers from the 99p shop – they were perfect for holding the material in place to create the square shaped tie-dye pattern.

The magic starts when you unwrap..it’s a bit like Christmas..you have no idea what they’re going to be like..

Now I have the kids home and dying everything in sight! But honestly, I can’t blame them..it’s addictive..for a wonderful day with friends, it’s surprisingly easy, wonderfully effective and thoroughly recommended!
