    Hi. I was at a shop where the owner tie dyed her own fabric and made clothing from it. I have been searching for the technique she used but am unable to find it. Maybe you could help. She used only one color, blue. Her ‘stripes’ were vertical. What made her design unique was the stripes were not wide…very small and not always well defined. The bleeding caused the original dark blue to mute into light blue and then white. But very very small stripes. I don’t know if you would call them stripes.
    Thanks for any help you can provide me.

    • Jeff A-Smith says:

      Just Fold the fabric from the bottom, up as though you were making a fan from a piece of paper. You can choose the thickness of the folds. I used this technique with approx. 1″ folds all the way up, then folded the folded shirt in quarters in order to make a tighter hold for the rubber bands. We squirted the die back and forth along the tops, “against the grain” and came out with horizontal lines that were more like a dashed line, thicker in the middles and spread thin at the edges of the lines. To spread the dye more thoroughly, after it sets for a little bit, you can gently squeeze the tightly rubber-banded shirt and give it the “bleeding” you likes. We were using a couple of colors, Red and Blue because I wanted some purple effects which we got nicely. For more solid stripes instead of the dashed line effect, I would suggest a thin puddle of dye that you set the folded edges of the rubber-banded shirt into, and allow it to soak for a little bit, then flip it over to soak on the other side. If your folds are thin enough, the colors will come together. If you folded thickly, then some squeezing and/or a deeper dye dip might be needed for the color (or colors) to reach each other.
