DIY projects are super popular now, and learning how to cook or doing crafts and building projects for the home have our interest.
Tie dying is rampant and everyone is a tie dye expert. I want to share a real 1970’s tie dye technique that I used back then, that still looks amazing.
Take a pair of jeans or jeans jacket and take rubber band and pinch the fabric, pull it and 2 inches to 3 inches down wrap a heavy rubber band around nice and tight.
Then do another 2 inches down and another 1 inch down. Create a pattern over the entire jean.
Then put on a triple mask and heavy rubber gloves and pour bleach in a bowl. Dip the pulled sections into the bleach. Make sure they are fully soaked.
Then after you complete the dipping place the jeans into a washing machine with more bleach to pull out the color of the basic jeans if you want them to be lighter shade.
Wash the jeans 2 times with the rubber bands to rinse the bleach out completely. Then place the jeans in the dryer and when fully dried remove the rubber bands with a small scissor. Give them a good shake and try them on. They will get better with age.
Here are some of my hand dyed pieces:
