For years now, the tie dye has been used to give certain outfits a special style and make them stand out from the rest. It is a very popular choice for people who have a knack for colors and especially those who can turn things from drab to fab with just a few swift strokes of a dye pen or roll of cloth. Tying a tie dye is not as easy as you think it is. This is because there are several different kinds of dyes and their own rules and guidelines to follow when applying them to different fabrics. Let us take a closer look at these different kinds of dyes and see how they can be applied to your clothing.
The first kind of tie dyeing fabric that you will need is cotton wool. The reason you need cotton wool is because cotton is a natural fiber that will never fade. Unlike silk, it does not absorb the tie dye automatically. Instead, it helps to keep the dye on the fabric. Also, it helps to keep the color of the tie dye as natural looking as possible.
You should then cut a small piece of white paper or fabric that is the same size as the area that you will be placing the dye on. On one end of this paper or fabric, you should find a small hole or needle. You will then need to use a small amount of glue to attach this hole to the background fabric. When this is done, you will simply need to glue the fabric to the background so that it is secure.
What happens next is simple. Instead of sewing the fabric to the background, you will simply use a marker to put in the colors of the dye that you are applying to the fabric. You should do this before you begin stitching the background together. The reason why you want to do this is so that the colors do not get mixed up when you stitch it together.
Next, you will need to take a small amount of the colored tie dye and spray it onto the fabric. If you do not have a pattern, you can spray it onto the entire surface of the background using a paint pen. Make sure that you spray the stain on evenly. You should also take your time to evenly spread the stains so that they do not appear blotchy.
After the stain has been applied, you should continue to stitch the fabric to the background using a wide piece of strong double stitching fabric. This is how the color will seep into the background. When you reach the end of the line, what you should do is simply pull the stitching to the opposite side so that the color runs perpendicular to the fabric. This is what gives the background the texture. You should continue to repeat this process until you reach the point where the tie dye is completely even on the entire fabric.
Once all the sections have been sewn, you should take your scissors and slowly cut the fabric to make the seams. This will help ensure that the tie dye colors are even across the whole fabric. When you have finished cutting, you should dampen the area with some water so that you can start working on the coloring of the pieces of the fabric. By using a dyes and a darning needle, you will be able to create some very unique designs.
After the colors have dried, you should hand stitch the pieces together and hem the bottom of the fabric. You should use one final stitch to tie the fabric in place. After you are finished, you will finally have a wonderful background to use for your sewing projects.
