Description

There are lots of different tie-dye patterns and folding techniques that you can use to create unique designs. Here are a few of the various designs you can create with tie-dye. 1. Spiral or Swirl Tie Dye Lay the shirt flat on the table. Starting on the left side, fold the shirt lengthwise in a series of accordion folds. I made each fold about 5 inches wide. Press the edges of each fold well to get sharp creases. Lay the shirt flat on a table. Pinch a small section of fabric at the center of the shirt. (If you want the bullseye to be off-center, choose a small section off-center.) This technique starts out the same way as the previous design. In the pictures above, reference the folding diagram on the right and the finished orange shirt. To make shibori-inspired triangle folds: For this technique, you don’t have to fold the fabric – though I think it would look really awesome with some thin accordion folds! To make an ombre dip dye design:

Starting at one end of your line, begin making small accordion pleats. Follow along the drawn line, folding the pleats in such as way that the marker line appears straight on the top of the folds. Tie-dye is a popular fabric dyeing technique known for its bright, saturated colors and bold patterns. It’s one of those nostalgic, feel-good crafts that never seem to go out of style. Pull the pinched fabric up to a point, and smooth the rest of the shirt down to create a skinny cone shape.For tie-dyers looking for more color options or a more professional quality dye, I recommend ProcionMX dyes from Jacquard or Dharma Trading Co. Wrap rubber bands around the cone of fabric, starting about an inch below the point of the cone. You can add as many or as few rubber bands as you want. Next, fold the shirt widthwise in a series of accordion folds. I made each fold about 3.5 inches wide to match. The resulting bundle of fabric should be a square shape.

Wrap several rubber bands around the disk. The tighter you scrunch it, the more white areas there will be in the final shirt.

Folding a rainbow shape is very similar to folding a heart – but even easier! Here’s how to make a tie-dye rainbow shape: Repeat this process, pinching another small section of fabric to create another cone. Secure with a rubber band.

Lay the shirt out on the table. Fold it in half lengthwise. Then fold in half again widthwise. The shirt is now folded into quarters. Lay the shirt flat on the table. Starting on the left side, fold the shirt lengthwise in a series of accordion folds. I made each fold about 3.5 inches wide. (You can make wider sections if you like.) Press the edges of each fold well to get sharp creases. To learn more about the basics of tie-dye, including how to prep, tie, dye, and wash tie-dyed garments, read my how-to article here: How to Tie Dye.Secure the shirt with 3 or 4 rubber bands, crisscrossing them over the center of the disc. The tighter you bind the shirt, the more white areas there will be. Wrap a rubber band around the small cone of fabric, about 1/2 to 1 inch down from the point of the cone. Draw half of a chevron V-shape on the folded edge with a washable marker. You can position it higher or lower than mine, or make it pointing upward or downward – your choice. Following the diagram above, fold the shirt in half along the diagonal line. The shirt is now folded in eighths.
