Tie Dye T-Shirts

Here’s how you fold a t-shirt to make a chevron tie-dye pattern.

For basic dying instructions check out my Tie Dye Tutorial Buy a tie dye kit here.

Tie Dye

Begin, by folding your t-shirt in half vertically.

Tie Dye

Fold over the top half of the shirt at a 45 degree angle.

Tie Dye

Fold the shirt back along the angle you created.

Tie Dye

Continue folding the shirt into pleats until it is in a long narrow strip.

Tie Dye

Tie the shirt off into sections with rubber bands.

Tie Dye

Squirt dye on each banded off section of the shirt with the squirt bottles. Open the folds here and there to make sure the dye is going all the way to the middle and that there aren’t any big white spaces.

Continue on with the dying process as outlined in my basic Tie Dye Tutorial.

    I made this design back when I took a class in high school, but now, I cant remember it to save my life. I get stuck in steps 2-3. My shirt never looks that neat when im done folding. Any chance you have a video on this? I posted a question on yahoo answers and you answered it, but I was unable to contact you through email or im. Love the shirt!

    How long do you keep the shirt folded before washing?

    i have a question? how do you get from ” folding back to the angle created” to the long narrow strip. I’m confused on how you folded it?

  • Erin

    How do you go from folding the shirt at the angle you created to making all of the pleats?? It looks like theres a pretty big jump in that step…
