Fun with Fabric Dye

This summer the girls and I had some fun with fabric dye.  I bought white canvas sneakers for $5 a pair at Walmart and a Tulip Tie Dye Kit.  We mixed up the colors and poured them into bowls so that we could use paintbrushes to decorate our own custom sneakers.  The girls went with their own themes- one went with a Hunger Games theme, the other a rock band theme. I just dabbed colors on to create an over-all pattern.  It kept everyone busy for hours.  With some of the left over fabric dye, I also made a cool t-shirt by using a large paintbrush to brush the color on. It can be a messy project, so best to do it outdoors on a nice day and wear clothes that you don’t mind staining.  The kit comes with one set of gloves, so you may want to buy some gloves unless you’re okay with your hands being colorful for  a few days.
