Tie Dye Sunday

We spent the day tie dying shirts at grandma & grandpa's house. Grandpa came up with this fun idea and stocked up with supplies at Hobby Lobby. I think maybe I had more fun than the kids! We started with tees for everyone...

Trying a swirl pattern

After all shirts were dyed, we had enough dye remaining to do socks!

After waiting hours, rinsing and washing each shirt separately (thanks to grandma!), the finished projects are ready!

Swirl pattern completed!
Bullseye pattern

Dot pattern

Scrunch pattern
Our exchange student was also excited to make her own shirt. I was unaware that tie dye shirts are an American thing, but she said she has never seen them or seen anyone wear them before in Holland. Who knew??
