Crumpled Tie Dye Folding Tutorial

Tie Dye T-Shirts

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

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

Tie Dye

Lay the shirt flat on your work surface and gather it up into random wrinkles by spreading your fingers out and crumpling it up in a disc shape. You want to expose as much of the t-shirt to the dye as you can so make sure there are lots of little folds and wrinkles.

Tie Dye

When you have finished crumpling, wrap 3 or 4 rubber bands around the shirt. Apply dye randomly to the shirt using the squirt bottles. I used a combination of blue and pink for this shirt, but you could use several other colors as well.

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