    Tie Dye T-shirt - mix a solution of (2) unsweetened Kool Aid packets, 4 c. warm water & 1 c. White Vinegar in a container, tie a rubber band around a section of the T-shirt and soak for several hours. The easiest way to do this is to take a plastic bread bag, shake out the crumbs, wrap the elastic tightly around the shirt, dip it into the colors you want, then stuff it into the bag, let it set 24 hours.

    If you want a starburst pattern on the shirt, lay the shirt down, opened up and pinch your fingers in the middle, gather the shirt around the pinch, secure with elastic bands.

    Wash and dry the shirt.


    If you have particular colors in mind here is how to get the EXACT Color Variation you're looking for
    Pink – 3 Pink Lemonade
    Red – 2 Chery/2 Jamaica
    Maroon – 2 Cherry/1 Blue Berry
    Orange – 3 Orange
    Dark Orange – 3 Orange/1 Cherry
    Light Yellow – 3 Lemonade
    Dark Yellow – 3 Lemonade/1 Orange (think SUNFLOWER Yellow)
    Green – 4 Lemon Lime/1 Blue Berry
    Lime Green – 3 Lemon Lime
    Blue – 4 Blue Berry/1 Grape
    Sky Blue – 3 Blue Berry

    Purple – 3 Grape
    Brown – 2 Lemonade/1 Grape/1 Orange
    Dark Brown – 1 Lemonade/1 Grape/1 Orange (Faux leather couch brown)


    Here's an example of a shirt we did for a last minute halloween costume using this method:

    How do you set the tie die? Do you rinse in cold water and then dry it?

    Would love to try this with my Girl Scouts, but need to know how many packets of kool aid to use and how to set the die. We tried a different mixture of kool aid to vinegar and it washed completely out of the shirts.

    What You Do:

    For every color you wish to use, put 1 package of Kool-Aid and 1 oz. vinegar in individual plastic bowls. Mix until dissolved.

    Pull and twist your T-shirt into different shapes and secure with rubber bands.

    Dip the areas gathered by the rubber bands into the bowls of color. Make sure you wear gloves so your hands don't get stained. Done dipping? Keep the rubber bands on and set t-shirts in the sun to dry. You and your child can try as many different colors as you like—just be sure to let each color dry before moving on to the next. Get creative!

    Once you're done with your dying, remove all of the rubber bands and hang the shirts outside to dry.

    To set the colors, iron your totally dry shirts on medium-high, using an ironing cloth (a cotton rag will work just as well too) between the shirt and the iron. Let the shirt set for 24 hours before washing. To be safe, wash separately the first time. Once it's washed it's ready to wear!
