Here is the tutorial on how to make this really pretty flower (use for hair bow, pillow, shirt etc).
What You’ll Need
- About 1/4 yard of white material
- Tulip One-Step Dye (colors of your choice)
- Small rubber bands (there are some in the kit, but I used smaller ones)
- Garbage bag (to put under the stuff you’ll tie-dye)
Cut several strips about 2 inches wide of white materail.
Then cut each strip according to the patterns above provided in actual size.
(Note: perfection is not needed, the pattern is more of a guide, meaning cut some petals of various sizes, when you put them together you’ll place the bigger ones first and build to the smaller petals.)
I followed the instructions in the box of Tulip One-Step Dye
. It was pretty simple. Once you have all the petals cut, wet them, then wrap a band about a 1/3 of the way from the bottom (I used Em’s little hair bands – the ones that came in the box of Tie-dye were too large).
With the gloves on provided in the box, I put yellow on the bottom first, then added the fushia on the top
Then bundled several of the groupings together in Syran wrap.
The instructions said to leave on for 4 – 8 hours, longer for deeper color, I left it on over night cause I was working on the pillow painting.
Then threw them in the washing machine by themselves and dried them by themselves as well.
Then I laid out the flower strips grouped by size.
Start with the larger strips, twist the center of the petal and insert the needle. Add about 5 petals of one size before moving on to the next smaller size. When you get the fluffiness that you want, run the needle through the grouping a couple of times and tie off.
And Ta-Da you have a really cute flower!
