Tie Dye Patterns and Techniques

  • Spiral Tie Dye T Shirts. Probably the most well known tie dye pattern is the spiral tie dye t shirt. In Western culture, this look exploded in popularity in the late 60's and continues to be enjoyed to this day. You can go with a vibrant rainbow color palette or do something a little less 60's by using just 2 or 3 complimentary colors.
  • Circle Tie Dye Technique. The circle tie dye technique is exciting like the spiral, however it's also much easier, more dependable and more predictable. It's great for beginners and due to the ease and predictability, it's an excellent choice for homemade gifts. Use the circle tie dye technique for anything from tie dye shirts to tie dye socks.
  • Marble Tie Dye Techniques. Here's another super fun tie dye technique using marbles that can be used for simple and classy circles or fantastically wild explosions of color.
  • Pleated Tie Dye Tee Shirts, Totes and More. Tie dying with pleats or rolls is another very easy tie dye technique. The pleated binding technique is especially great for thick fabrics and large fabrics. It is also more uniform and less 60's than the spiral and makes great tie dye tee shirts for guy gifts.

So that's it for now on tie dye! Please be sure to show off your tie dye projects and gifts here for others to get inspiration from... it's fun to brag and we'd be honored to show off your pics!
