Tie-Dyeing Creates Unique Patterns A scarf is a grand fashion accessory and truly a point of interest when it is your own tie-dye original. Easy to do tie-dye is a creative way to decorate fabric. Each time it is an original because no two tie-dyes are ever exactly the same. Experiment and enjoy the fun. Enjoy the satisfaction of wearing your own creation and the compliments you will receive! To make this scarf, select a fabric of light or pastel color in the size you want. Any washable fabric will do except for some polyesters and acrylics, glass or mineral fibers. Your scarf can be a small square or.large, oblong or whatever. The basic idea is to tie off sections of the fabric. When dyed, these sections will remain the original color forming a pattern against the dyed background. Twist the fabric, crumble it, gather it, fold it or form it Into a series of loops. Secure the base of each loop, the gathers or crumbled, folded or twisted fabric in several places with tightly wound string or rubber bands. Prepare the dye solution To make a scarf with more than one dyed color, tie it and dip sections into different dye solutions. Another way to obtain additional colors is to dye the first time in a light color, add additional ties and dye a deeper color. Always rinse the scarf between dyeing and rinse thoroughly when all dyeing is completed. UNIQUE PATTERNS EVERY TIME Tie-Dyeing Can Be Fun
