Do You Remember....

....TIE DYE?

My friend Bettijo of Bath by Bettijo, invited me over the other day to try out some sweet tie-dying techniques. I love going to her house because it always smells outrageous due to her products! This time it was minty fresh because they had been working on some Mint Shower Infusers...Mmmmm.

Here is Bettijo working her magic. (She also works magic with her products, I use her Whipped Shea Butter for my kids' very dry and cracked skin and it is UH-Mazing!)

Dana and Bettijo's little sis Crissy, who was an outstanding mentor and teacher on the art of dying and tying.

and myself enjoying some squirting.... I was a little cautious at this stage

These are our lovely bottles of very, cool dye (not Rit...a special brighter, bolder variety).


Q's shirt in progress....first all tied up, then dyed, then dried.

And the rest of the bunch...notice the burp cloth at the end...wish I had done more of of turned out so fun!

And finally the kiddos sportin' their duds... they were all quite excited to wear them and it was a fun little project. Now I want to do more...maybe some curtains, bedding, socks, who knows...the sky's the limit!

Thanks Bettijo for your cool idea and a fun day with yummy treats!


  1. LOVE the shirts. I'm thinking a tutorial at your house?
