Tie Dye Kids Apron Tutorial! Easy and so cute! Your daughter will love it!

My daughter, Lily, LOVES to craft and bake with me!

When the other two kiddos go down for naps in the afternoon, it’s Mommy/Lily time and we have so much fun together!

She recently mentioned that she wanted a crafting apron, so I thought it would be fun to Tie Dye one for her.

MY OTHER RECIPES

She has an obsession with hearts {she called them “valentines”} so I knew I wanted to do that on her apron. This is how it turned out:

Lily LOVES it!!

Here is how you can make it too:

SUPPLIES:

Tulip Tie Dye Kit

– Surface Cover

– Washable Marker

– Saran Wrap

– Kids Apron (bought mine at Hobby Lobby with my coupon for a few dollars)

DIRECTIONS:

1. Gather all your supplies.

2. Prep your area. Tie Dye is messy and can stain so you want to make sure to cover your area and put on gloves.

3. With your gloves on add water to the line on the tie dye bottles. You will shake until the powder has dissolved. Set aside.

4. Pre-wash your apron. To get it ready to tie dye a heart this is what you will need to do: While still damp you will straighten it out, fold it in half and then draw on a heart with a washable marker.

5. Fold your apron all along the heart you drew so that it forms a straight line. I started at the bottom and then folded all along the line gathering the fabric as I went.

6. Start tie dying. I did the heart purple and then added a line of blue right at the end of the heart section and then just alternated colors the rest of the way. Flip, and does this to the other side. Cover apron with saran wrap and let set for 6-8 hours.

7. After 6-8 hours (I waited about 7) I cut off the staples and rinsed with hot water until no more dye came out and then dried it. Be sure not to wash this with other items for the first few washes.
