Dip Dyed Ombre Shirt, a Winner and Another Book Giveaway


I love the ombre effect. It’s on everything these days, clothes, decor and even hair. It’s such a beautiful look and super easy to do yourself. You can update the style of any white thrift store shirt quickly and easily by just using some regular colored dye.


You’ll need a plastic tub, rubber gloves, salt, dye, a wooden stir stick, and a white shirt. Cotton shirts work best for this kind of project. You can use shirts made from other fibers, but the colors will be different.

    Just love the ombré dyed shirt. I tried ice dyeing with a friend a few weeks ago…….so easy & loads of fun. You’ve just given me another idea.
    Would love to come to your book launch party but sorry, can’t as I will be out of town.
