Finally! The much anticipated “messy” crochet tutorial 🙂
Tie-Dye. I’m not a huge tie-dyer. I think before I started this project, the last (and only other) time I tie-dyed anything was in middle school. I won’t say exactly how long ago THAT was, but suffice to say it was not recently.
This was a fun project. I will definitely be trying it again!

Lucky readers – you don’t have to wait 6-8 hours to see the results 😛
After the initial wait time, I rinsed (and rinsed, and RINSED) the material until the water was mostly clear, then washed it by itself in hot water with a small amount of laundry detergent, and ran it through the dryer until it was mostly dry.
I don’t LOVE how it turned out, but I’m satisfied with it, as it was my first time. Plus, I had a LOT of dye, so I whipped up a shirt for myself as well!
Here is the finished product:
What do you all think? I contained the mess pretty well. I would definitely make sure you have a container you don’t care about, gloves to protect you from dying your skin, and a roll of paper towels on hand.
I’d LOOOOOVE to see your finished items if you try it!
