My family is having a beach vacation together this summer and I though it would be a great idea to make tie dye beach towels for everyone....all 16 of everyone! I started dyeing them last Fall and just finished last week. Here are the last 7.
I didn't really dye any of them with specific colors for specific people except for maybe the brown and green one. That one is a camouflage look and I'm thinking my middle brother might prefer it. But he doesn't have to take it because I made a few extra.
By the time I got to the last one I had run out of steam and I had a lot of partial bottles of dye that I needed to use. I realized that they were all reds and blues so I mixed them together, dumped them int he bin and just plopped the beach towel in to see what would happen. By the morning the whole towel looked purple in the bin so the dye soaked all the way through.
Doesn't it figure? It's the best of the bunch! At last it's the best according to Chris. He loves this one.
I have one brother who hates tie dye of any kind so I bought him this one. He loves Guy Harvey clothing so I know he will be thrilled with this.
I'm ready for the beach!
Next year I'm going to make something smaller.
