Dyeing on Labor Day

   Hmm, what to do on Labor Day when it is  cloudy and no one wants to do anything? Dye! We had bought 16 tee shirts for my son's party - they came in packs of 8 - and we were expecting 10 kids.  When five arrived we were left with a few extra shirts.  So yesterday my youngest son and I used up several half filled bottles of Rit dye and  spent some quality time away from the television.  

be sure to cover your clothes

Always use tongs

the first few hanging to dry

the resist we liked the best

over-dyed and scrunched

the first tie dye and a dipped shirt

the perfect background

And it glows in the dark, too!
