DIY Tie Dye Socks

Image

I love socks durring this time of year, and wanted to spice up and widen my elaborate collection

Materials needed:

socks

tie dye kit

water

Image

This Tie Dye kit is available at most craft stores and it works amazing!

(I used this kit for the socks above)

Image

In the kit there was a presoak powder  to help the fabric absorb pigment.

I mixed that with warm water in the bowl.

Image

Layout all your materials and try to be organized

Image

I let my socks soak for about 10 minutes in the provided solution

Image

Make sure to squeeze out ALL the liquid (as much as possible), they need to be able to absorb the dye.

Image

Prepare your dying surface. I used the floor of the shower, and a trash bag to be EXTRA safe!

Image

Add warm/hot water to the dye bottles, and shake well to dissolve the dye.

(be careful not to splatter yourself)

Image

Now have FUN and apply the dye in any pattern

Image

After letting the socks sit for 24 hours remove the rubber bands and rinse with cold water…

wash, dry, and enjoy your new socks!

My Labor day weekend consisted of yoga on the go, great food, a little shopping, and much needed beach play.

I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one”

When I think of fall I think of knitting, apple cider, football, flannels, boots, and sweaters. Fall is my favorite season with the color changes and the coolness in the air, its a refreshing season for the earth, and for us!

Take the time to enjoy the smell, and season of Fall.

Ripple in still water,
When there is no pebble tossed,
Nor wind to blow.
