Tie Dye Day


Today we made the cutest tie dye baby clothes! Found the how-to's in the current issue of Parent's Magazine and it looked simple enough. It was easy, but beware it is super messy. We did these outside--my sweet boy really wanted to help and got a little carried away being the "pot stirrer." At the end of our project we had created a tank top for my child, three cute baby onsies/tees and a hat for my niece and a oh my gosh it's totally ruined beautiful new patio chase lounge cushion covered with blue dye (aaarrrggghhh!)

p.s. if anyone has a tip for getting dye out of upholstery fabric, I will be your new BFF!

Hmmm, you tie a rubberband around it, dip in in the bucket, and tie die it!

You are a brave momma.

Well I don't know a way to get dye out, but being the crafty chick that you are you could buy some cool new fabric and sew a whole new cover for the lounge. Although I am not sure if that would work if the cushion is not detachable, but you get where I am going with it. Maybe that's too much work, I dunno?
