  • :( OK SO I loooove tie dying and that is why I am here but beyond the spirals and fan folds, I dont know how to make the hearts and smiley faces. Does anyone know how to do it and what is the EXACT instructions on how to create this type of shirt BEFORE dying it? Please help

  • Hi,
    Paula Birch has some links to info on her site.

  • Paula' site is great--definitely check it out! I highly recommend the video she mentions: 'True Tie Dye's Tom Rolofson's wonderful "Learn How to Tie Dye" series of DVDs' (see Amazon affiliate links at right side of Paula's page). Very well organized and he makes really cool things!


    Here is another link (on Jacquard's website) with specific instructions for tying a heart. Use the same principles for any stitched design.
