Little Circles Tie Dye Folding Tutorial

Tie Dye T-Shirts

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

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

Tie Dye

Lay your shirt flat on your work surface and pinch both layers of fabric where you’d like the center of the circle to be. Pull up so the fabric is tented a bit.

Tie Dye

Wrap a rubber band around the fabric an inch or two from the peak of the tent.  If you want a bigger circle, you can band off another inch or so.

Tie Dye

Pull up as many of these sections as you’d like circles on the shirt. I made three on mine, but you could do more if you made them smaller.

 

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. Then squirt the rest of the shirt with the dye. The more dye you use, the darker and more uniform the color will be.

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