DIY: Indigo Tie Dye Maxi Skirt and Totebag

What do you get when you mix a bucket of indigo dye, a couple of girlfriends, and a beautiful day?

 A new maxi skirt and a tote bag, of course!

I had a big bucket ‘o dye left over from my first tie dye adventure so Cathy and Linda came over to help me use up some more.


I couldn’t believe my two hippy girlfriends had never tie dyed before.

But they caught right on and jumped right in. Linda made river scarf party favors for an upcoming raft trip and Cathy made some cute new shirts.

 The tote bag was for Cathy’s birthday present. I used the same pattern from my previous DIY Tote Bag Post.

You might recognize the maxi skirt pattern from this post.

Believe it or not, I STILL have dye and I think I may have, quite possibly, tie dyed everything in sight……

  1. I want to shop for new clothes at your house. 🙂 Another fabulous project!

  2. What great fun!
    But I think if you tie-dye much more you will have to open an ETSY shop!!

    • So true, Laura 🙂 The directions say the dye will last a few days, but it seems to be lasting much longer than that. I think I need to have another tie dye party just to use it up.
      Thanks for your comments!
