Product description

Tie-dyeing is a versatile technique that is currently making a comeback in the fashion world. Tie-dyeing is a versatile technique that has been used throughout the world to add interesting colours and patterns to fabrics. Recently it has been reclaimed as a fashion-forward technique that can be adapted to suit any taste or palette. This book offers a basic understanding of colour, fabrics, and dyeing, and a fully illustrated step-by-step guide to five basic tie-dye methods (scrunch, stripes, bubbles, bull's eye, and spiral). More than 25 fresh project ideas - from ombre dresses to a dreamy watercolour tote- will help readers fully explore the many possibilities this hand-dye technique offers. Tips will be included for creating tie-dye with children, using alternate household materials, and understanding how different fabrics can alter the final look of your design.
