|Patriotic Tie-Dye Shirt|
What is Needed:
- White T-Shirt
- Tie-Dye Kit (found at Walmart)
- Sink and Water
- Washing Machine
I purchased this red and blue tie-dye kit at Walmart. It came with the mixing bottles (dye was already in the bottle), rubber bands and plastic gloves. The kit also comes with instructions and examples on different types of shirts to make. This is a mini kit and there is enough dye to make 3 projects.

Step 1: Determine what type of design you want. I'm hoping for blue on top and red on bottom that will be patriotic looking when complete. Scrunch your t-shirt and add rubber bands. When completed, the parts with rubber bands will be white. The exposed portion will receive the dye.

|Adding blue dye to top portion of wet shirt|
|Adding red dye to bottom portion of wet shirt|
|Dyed shirt placed in plastic bag and left to sit for 6-8 hours|
And here is the result.
