๐ŸŽจ What You'll Need:

  • White cotton garment (t-shirt, hoodie, tote bag, etc.)
  • Fabric dye in three different colors of your choice
  • Plastic squeeze bottles Plastic gloves Plastic bags or plastic wrap
  • Rubber bands
  • Plastic table cover or garbage bags (for mess control)
  • Water source
  • Optional: Plastic dropper bottles for precise color application



๐ŸŒ€ Step-by-Step Tutorial:

Prepare Your Workspace: Lay down your plastic table cover or garbage bags to protect your workspace from dye splatters. Put on your plastic gloves to keep your hands clean throughout the process.


Prepare the Garment: Dampen the white cotton garment. This will help the dye penetrate the fabric more effectively.


Create the Spiral:

Lay the garment flat on a surface. Pinch the fabric where you want the center of the spiral to be. Start twisting the fabric in a spiral motion from the center point, until the entire garment is twisted into a tight spiral. Secure with Rubber Bands: Place rubber bands evenly around the spiral. You can divide the spiral into six sections, like a pie, and place rubber bands to secure each section. The more sections, the more defined the color separation will be.

Prepare Dye Solutions:

Mix each color of fabric dye according to the manufacturer's instructions. Pour each color into separate plastic squeeze bottles. Optionally, use plastic dropper bottles for more precise application.

Apply the Dye:

Choose one color to start with. Apply the dye to one of the sections created by the rubber bands. Repeat this process with the other two colors, applying each to a separate section. Flip and Repeat:

Carefully flip the garment to the other side. Apply the same color sequence to the corresponding sections on the back of the garment.

Wrap and Set:
Once the dye is applied, wrap the entire garment in plastic bags or plastic wrap. This will help the colors set and prevent them from bleeding into each other.

Let It Set:

Allow the wrapped garment to sit for 6-8 hours or as recommended by the dye manufacturer. This will give the colors time to bond with the fabric.

Rinse and Unwrap:

Unwrap the garment and remove the rubber bands. Rinse the garment under cold water until the water runs clear. Then gradually increase the water temperature until it's warm.

Wash and Dry:

Wash the tie-dyed garment separately in cold water using a mild detergent. Dry the garment away from direct sunlight to prevent fading.

Show off Your Creation:

Once dry, your 3-color spiral tie-dye masterpiece is ready to wear! Flaunt your unique creation and enjoy the compliments that come your way.
