Tie Dye Frenzy! (Giveaway)

***WINNER PICKED 6/25 WITH RANDOM.ORG***

***CONGRATULATIONS, lisagee1234!!!***

her comment...
Heritage Ornaments with Jacquard Inkjet Silk-
those are really cool and I'd like to make them.




Jacquard Products offers a dizzying array of creative color tools for artists, hobbyists and crafters. Their products are highly sought after for textile applications and run the gamut from jarred paints to pens and airbrush liquids. Although Jacquard Products are designed for professionals, they can also help beginners achieve fantastic results. Their kits make it easy for anyone to make beautiful keepsake projects, anything from screenprinting to indigo dyeing to silk painting. We received the Funky Groovy Tie Dye Kit and Roo could barely control her excitement!



We picked out items from each family member's closet to tie dye and bundled them and twisted them and bound them with rubber bands. Then we soaked them in a soda ash solution which acts as a fixative for the dye.



While the bundles were soaking, I mixed up the dyes with tap water. These are incredibly vibrant dyes so gloves are a must!



We went out to the patio for the actual dye application, just in case of imminent disaster, but the squeeze bottles that come with the Funky Groovy Tie Dye Kit keep mess to a minimum. To say that Roo loved squirting dye willy nilly onto our shirt bundles is a massive understatement. I must admit that it was a lot of fun, especially pulling back rubber banded areas to squirt in between layers.



After you're finished dyeing, you let the bundles sit for 24 hours. This was the most frustrating part for Roo since she wanted to check it out immediately. The next day, I rinsed the bundles and then washed and dried our creations. It was hard to believe that they were laundry-safe considering how much damp dye still remained in our clothes, but once they were rinsed there was no staining or leaching onto other items. Yay! I'm not usually a big fan of tie dye (too bright or hippie-ish) but I think our stuff came out awfully cute:



The Funky Groovy Tie Dye Kit is recommended for up to five shirts but we had a LOT of dye leftover, so I think they must mean five extra super huge tees, not toddler and preschooler sized garments. We could have easily done twice as many items with this kit but if you have a bigger group or a huge project (drapes, duvet cover, slipcover), you might want to try the Tie Dye Kit for 15 shirts. We're going to try that one out with Roo's classmates very soon!



To enter and win a Funky Groovy Tie Dye Kit, please comment on this post with your favorite item from Jacquard Products.
