DIY Block Print Tie-Dye

Before I begin I have to admit that this tie-dye was a fluke. When I started I didn't know what I was doing or how I was going to do it. I only knew it was going to be a tie-dye. So that's the reason why it's called 'block print tie-dye', I wasn't sure what to call it. But it is pretty cool right?

Stuff you need:
T-shirt
Dye
Rubber bands

1. Lay out your t-shirt


2. Roll one half of the shirt diagonally


3. Roll the other half inwards


4. Tie several rubber bands along the entire roll


5. According to the instructions on the dye packet, dye the rolled up t-shirts



Remove the rubber bands and dry the shirt. I cut off the collar and shortened my t-shirt because it was a large mens size.

Is this amazing or what?

I love it! It really gives a modern and expensive look to a trend that has clearly been worn out through the years. Great job!

Oh, and I wonder who took those amazing photos. They are just so talented.
