Fun with Tie Dye

Camille turned six this month, and she had a couple of friends over to celebrate. It was very laid back and casual. The girls mostly played but we also made tie dye pillow cases. It was our first experience with tie dye and I was surprised at how easy it was. It probably helped that it was a beautiful day and we were able to do the project outside.

We used this kit here but bought it at Joann's. They always have 40 or 50% off coupons so it's very inexpensive.

We let the dye set in overnight so the colors would absorb as much as possible, then just stuck the pillow cases in the washer & dryer the next morning.

The kids were so excited about their new pillow cases! And I even made one for myself!
