I Dyed.. x


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….


Joy of joys..the sun shone!


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..


But the results were pretty spectacular!


Each one different and unique!  My washing line has never looked so cool!


OMG – It actually looks like the tutorial photo!

This beauty was the result of ‘stick’..it’s like looking up at the sea whilst diving..


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!
