file this one under crazy ideas.
a few weeks ago, my sister came home to do a medical rotation and spend some time on the home front. fulfilling my duties as camp counselor, combined with a crazy idea and the glimmer of a plan, i picked up a tie-dye kit for us to play with.
i put it off for a little while, but the right opportunity for this type of frivolity presented itself to us today and we went for it. i went first with a “bunching” technique i saw on the tie-dye DVD (no, seriously, i ordered a tie-dye DVD) i popped in as i prepped our work space. i made a huge mess and it was pretty awesome. part of my foot is green.
i’m not sure tie dye was the most ideal activity for little-miss-so-perfect-i-use-a-t-square-when-we-make-black-and-white-cookies. true story. but her spiral was pretty awesome and her vertical stripe technique was a thing of beauty.
tomorrow’s the big reveal, after i let the dye and soda ash cure on the t-shirts overnight. see you then. are you stoked?
