On Friday, I announced that I started a Challenge DIY link-up with Jessinia and today I’m going to share my completed t-shirt with you! A while ago I bought some fabric dye at Joann Fabrics (violet and aqua) so I decided to use them to transform my shirt.
The first picture on the left is just the gradient effect I got with the two different colors. I was hoping it would come out more blueish but it just made a darker purple. I really love it though, just make sure if you do it you get 2 colors that would look good mixed! 🙂
Second picture is the blue dye in the sink, I moved the shirt up a little after 10 minutes to get an ombre look. And the third is just with the purple/violet dye. I barely left the very top in and then just moved it out every once in a while.
Make sure it you are doing it in a sink you have some bleach for when you are done. There was a line on the sink from the dye but after some scrubbing with bleach you couldn’t tell at all!
After the shirt dried completely, I decided to add some yellow fabric paint in triangle on the bottom. Your on my blog right now can’t you tell I love trianges? lol. I decided on yellow because they are complementary colors (it looks more orange than it actually is) and I’ve always liked them together.
