Fall is almost here and my daughter Lily has been asking for another jean jacket. It was the perfect opportunity for me to try tie-dying jean material for the first time. I used the Tulip One Step Tie-Dye Mega Value Kit. There is enough bottles to tie dye multiple projects and there is a bonus fabric glitter spray. It was the perfect pop of sparkle to make my daughter obsessed with this jean jacket! Check out this easy project!
- White Jean Jacket
- Tulip One Step Tie-Dye Mega Value Kit
- Cover your surface with the plastic included in the kit.
- Soak the jean jacket in water until it is wet all the way through.
- Select your dye colors. I wanted to go with fall tones but still have something bright that could work all year.
- Pick a design and band the jean jacket with the included rubber bands. I went with a simple bubble banding since this was the first time dying jean and it is not super flexible.
- Fill dye bottles and shake over a trash can until the powder is dissolved.
- Apple dye to each bubble making sure you use enough dye to soak through the jean fabric.
- When you are finished applying dye, wrap the jacket in the plastic and use rubber bands to secure the bundle so no dye leaks out.
- Let the jacket sit for 6-8 hours. The longer you let it process the more vibrant the colors will become.
- Once it is done processing, cut away the rubber bands and run it under cold water until the water runs clean.
- I like to let my jacket lay flat to dry for a few hours before washing it for the first time.
- Once you are ready to wash it, fill the washing machine with water, use a small amount detergent and wash jacket by itself.
- Hang or machine dry!
- If you want to add glitter, spray when the fabric is damp or dry and then let the glitter dry for a few hours before wearing.
TADA! Lily loves her new jean jacket! She said it reminds her of a sunflower!
