I’m not sure if they could have looked more thrilled in this picture. I promise they were all excited to do this. Really. Can you see me trying to hold my shirt up over there in the lower left hand corner? Someone’s got to take the picture and it’s usually me.
Anyhoo we worked diligently on our shirts. Wrapping them, tying them, dying them with last years ink that ended up being a big mistake because apparently the ink goes bad and I didn’t know that because I’m not an ink expert, but more on that in a little bit. (Nice run on sentence.)
Busy busy busy!
Fun fun fun!
We worked hard and waited patiently for our shirts to cure so we could unwrap them and see our beautiful creations. And they were beautiful. (Well except for maybe my hubby’s. He tried to do his own thing. Don’t stray from the instructions next time Honey.) Until…………..
……..we washed them. This is what I get for trying to be frugal.
From left to right you have mine, my hubby’s and my daughter’s. The boy’s shirts did the same thing but theirs are in the wash because they are actually wearing them.
As you can see the color completely washed out. So what does one do when one is faced with such a problem as this? They go back to the store to buy a NEW tie dye set and redo our shirts.
Last years tie dyes are still very colorful after many many washings so I know it’s the ink that must have been too old. Oh well, lesson learned.
So be on the look out for Tie Dye Shirts Take 2.
