I absolutely jumped on the tie dye sets bandwagon. I mean, if you haven’t tie dyed or made banana bread did you even quarantine? Making these sets not only gave me something to do but it also gave me a super comfy outfit to lounge in. I decided on two different versions of tie dye sets. I made a bleach dye black set and then pink with pink tie dye set.
Because it seems everyone is making these, I ended up ordering mine from Walmart online. I decided to grab an all black set and then a pink set. I made Sky a shirt and a set for my mom so will all of that and a tie dye kit, I ended up spending around $65 when most online are like $100. Also, the shipping took less than a week on Walmart so it was really fast with everything going on. I think you’ll be surprised with just how easy these tie dye sets were to make!
I decided to do my bleach dye set first. It was actually not as scary as it may seem. I first rinsed out the set and made sure to get most of that water out. Then I rubber banded the pants and top. I didn’t bother to do the usual patterns, I actually just went in and randomly pulled up pieces. Once it was time to bleach, I put it in a liquid measuring cup instead of just using the bottle so it had more mobility. I let the bleach set for about 10 minutes and then put it right in the washing machine. It was so easy and I really love the way it came out.
For this one, I didn’t wash the set prior. I just put the dye on while the set was dry. I also made sure to do the tie dye swirl on the sweatshirts and then for the rest, I did it just like the bleach dye where I randomly banded pieces. This dye had to set for 6-8 hours so just be aware of that when you start this project. Once that time was up, I rinsed out some of the dye just so it wouldn’t fully ruin my washing machine. I kept the rubber bands in while I rinsed it and then I took them out before I put them in the washer and dryer.
This was a really fun project to do during this quarantine. I absolutely love the comfy tie dye sets I now have. I think the best part was that each tie dye sets were only around $22 each. On some websites they are selling sets like these for up to and even over $100. Quarantine can be pretty boring but making fun projects like this really helps to pass them time.
