Tie-Dye T-Shirt Scarf

Tie-Dye T-Shirt Rope ScarfILTC DisclosureI’ve been obsessed with making t-shirt ropes since my headband project from last summer. And since it’s almost summer once again, its time to tie-dyeOne Step Tie Dye KitI love using the One-Step Tie-Dye Kits when I’m dying anything. Just add water to the bottle and squeeze it right on your fabric. There’s no mess thanks to the bottles and included gloves. Tie Dye SaltI decided to try a salt resist technique while dying this time. All you do is wet your fabric, add your dye and then sprinkle with coarse salt.
Salt resistI used a lot of coarse salt. Another option is creating a design with the salt crystals. Let things sit for at least four hours. Longer is better.
Salt Resist Close UpAfter a few hours you give it a rinse and then give it a wash. See those speckles? That’s the salt. It’s a very cool and subtle effect. T-Shirt StripsOnce your t-shirt is dry, cut it into one inch strips, without cutting the sides. Each cut should create one tube of t-shirt fabric. You’ll want to be neat, but it’s not necessary to be obsessively even when you cut. T-Shirt RopesGrab your tube of fabric and give it a good tug. That will create your rope.Gathered t-shirt ropesGather your t-shirt ropes together and you have a fun scarf! You can use one of the ropes to tie them all together, but that’s optional. NecklaceThe t-shirt ropes are long enough that you can double or even triple them to create the look you want. You can even use one of the ropes to wrap around your wrist to create a cute bracelet!
