Fabric dye ideas – doodling and drawing! Due to the lack of cool plus-size blouses at a lot of retail stores, I took matters in my own hands! Dharma Trading has a nice collection of plus-size dyeable blouses that work beautifully with fabric dye. Here is the finished look of a blouse I dyed by doodling!
What I love about this idea is that you can use it on all kinds of clothing or even pillowcases, etc. We always think of tie-dye as tieing up the clothing, but why now, just lay it flat and draw random designs. I drew straight from the fine-tip bottle, but you could put the dye in smaller bottles with finer tips for more precision.

Use different application techniques:
Drips and drizzle
Fabric dye powder.
Sprinkled Powder Technique:
Okay, let me explain this one. For all my tie-dye projects, I always use powdered dye. Add water, shake, apply…You get the the gist.
In this case, we’re doing something different because we want variety!
Dampen your shirt. Put on the the gloves, cover your work surface.
Open the package of powdered dye and sprinkle it on the damp shirt. You can even add salt for a cool effect.
The powdered dye will leave a gritty type of look, a change from the usual.
