Tie-dye addict Lizzie King shares inspiration and instructions for creating a vibrant kaleidoscope of gifts, garments, housewares, and accessories. Tie-dye has shaken off its hippie image to become a stylish and iconic look, bringing bright hues, striking patterns, and heaps of character to clothing and textiles. This book shows you how to hand-dye your own, with 15 fashion-forward projects that range from statement T-shirts, dip-dye shoelaces, and onesies, to sophisticated shibori tea towels, tropical bunting, and retro woven plant hangers. Simple step-by-step instructions and fun, colorful photographs demonstrate how to tie, fold, stitch, or clamp your fabric for a variety of effects, such as stripes, swirls, fish scales, grid-lines or even rainbows. Plus, Lizzie offers her expert advice on mixing shades, choosing fabrics, washing, and more—everything you need to get great results.
