DIY RAINBOW TIE DYE DOONA COVER
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
- Tulip tie dye kit
- Plain White Cotton Bedding
- Washing machine
- Doona Cover
- Large plastic sheet
Step 1 -Before you start tie dyeing, make sure to wash your fabric item to remove the sizing. Then grab your damp fabric directly from the washer and prep it for dyeing.
Step 2 - Fold, twist and bind your fabric according to your chosen tie-dye technique. We used a stripe technique, to create this pleat and fold fabric vertically on the end of the pillow case and diagonally from the corner of the doona cover. Secure folds with elastic bands provided in the kit.
Step 3 - Once your fabric is secured, it's time to mix your Tulip dyes! Simply add water and shake the dye bottles until all of the dye is mixed. Lay out large plastic sheet to protect the surface you are working on and put on the plastic gloves.
Step 4 - Squeeze dye onto different sections of your bound fabric to your liking. You might need to rotate and/or flip your fabric as you are applying dye to make sure you cover all sections.
Step 5 - Cover your tie dyed fabric in plastic to keep damp while the dye sets. Let it set for 6 to 8 hours or longer for brightest colours. Follow the tie-dye instructions included in your kit for laundering.
