Ice Dyeing Tutorial
I know, I promised this tutorial over 2 weeks ago! It has taken some time to get the photos edited and the tutorial written up but it's finally here. I have outlined the process that I use for ice dyeing but if this is something that you are seriously interested in please take the time to read/watch how other people do it as well. There are as may processes for ice dyeing as there are family mashed potato recipes. It's good to check them all out.
In this tutorial I also show how I create the Galaxy fabrics as a by-product of the ice dyeing process. I don't like to waste dye and ice dyeing is a huge dye wasting process. Creating the Galaxy fabrics is a great way to use that wasted dye. T shirts would be awesome dyed in the bottom of an ice dyeing bin.
Get the tutorial here and have fun ice dyeing your own fabric. If you see any typos or if anything is confusing, please let me know. I'm happy to fix the document.

Thank you for the tutorial. I've tried it once, but want to do more of it. You have designed an ingenious set-up! I did find a statement confusing - on page 2, under the image of green fabric - "I will fold, scrunch or fold and then scrunch..." - ? I'm thinking you meant something else? There are some typos but you probably don't want to hear about those. :)

Thank you for sharing
Thanks for the tutorial! The only fabric dyeing I've done was tie dye for home ec class in the 70s. I'm not sure I need yet more projects, but I'm glad to have the information handy.

Thank you for this! I'm making a note of it and might have a go come winter when there's snow to be had.
