Real Tie Dye

Before - plain white T-shirt...

During:  Rubberband "ties" to make a pattern...

"I regret that I have but one life to give for my homeschool mini-co-op."

During: First bunny ears of the day...

During:  Woo...careful with the red stuff...

After:  Ta-Da!!!!

OK, here are pictures of everybody else:

Our 2 girls brought tank tops.  One is tied for horizontal stripes; the other has marbles tied up to make white circles in the finished product.

We think this one looked like a mermaid. It swam around a bit.

Some get dunked all the way; others are clothespinned to the side so only the sunbursts get color.

"Rinse, wring, repeat."
 - song of the rinse squad.

That Science Geek wields a mean sprayer.

Waiting for the big reveal.

Ta da!!!!!

More bunny ears, and a side sunburst.

Best "I remember the 70's" shirt.

Takes a while to get all those rubber bands out.

Almost all our shirts are 2-color.  This summer when I do tie dye with Gymnastics camp, all shirts will be one color only - takes too much time and work to do 2-color with a bigger group.

Double bunny ears!

Tie dye - it's not just for T-shirts.  This was a very light denim skirt.  Now it is turquoise and green.

After being wrung out twenty 'leven times, will it ever be short enough again?

Is there no escape from bunny ears?

Birthday Boy

Finally free from bunny ears!

I can't resist - Here is Keisuzi teaching her last IEW class of the school year.

I think we're all relaxing a little.

Being the birthday boy does not exempt one from bunny ears.

Mini-Co-op Justice League!

  1. It was the best co-op day ever. We loved the tie dye and can't wait to do it again. Thank you for all of your hard work.
