tulip® heart tie-dye t-shirt

If you love tie dye, then this is the pattern for you! You will learn how to add a heart shape to a shirt, tank and more. (And it is easier than you think!)
Step 1

Fold a scrap piece of paper in half. Draw the outline of half a heart along the fold. Cut out the shape.

Step 2

Dampen your shirt then fold in half.

Step 3

Trace the half heart shape onto your shirt, at the fold, with a washable marker.

Step 4

Tightly pleat fabric along marker line.

Step 5

Use a rubber band to bind pleated fabric tightly around marker line.

Step 6

Bind fabric with additional rubber bands.

Step 7
Squeeze alternating dye colors between rubber bands. Cover dyed fabric with plastic wrap (or disposable plastic bag) to keep damp. Let set 6 to 8 hours, rinse thoroughly and wash separately per tie-dye instructions.
