Kids Art Quilt: Tie-Dye Fabric

After finding a Ricky Tims Convergence Quilts book I thought it would be fun to do Tie-Dye with the kids and then turn the fabric into some quilts.


We used Tulips One-Step Tie-Dye Kit with 12 different colors in it. It was extremely simple to use and very little mess for dying with small children. I would highly recommend the product.


We used all the dye up. The instructions said we should leave the dye to set for 6hrs ... so we did - I wondered if it would allow the colors to bleed too much - but they didn't. 


We had a little bit of dye left so my eldest had fun squirting the leftovers onto two strips of fabric. 


The other great thing about the Tulip Kit was that is came with lots of different pattern ideas. 


We played with explosions, crosses, stripes, swirls and bulls-eye designs. 

We were too shy with the dye on the larger pieces of fabric. They look cool but I worry there is too much white on them for our 'convergence' quilt plan. 



We also took the opportunity to make some tie-dye t-shirts for Father's day that everyone wore proudly!




I hope you all had a lovely weekend too!
