SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Tulip One-Step Tie Dyes in Pink and Green
  • Tulip Glam it Up Crystals in Black
  • Tulip Cordless Heat Tool
  • White shorts
  • Scissors
  • Plastic surface cover or tablecloth
  • Baking rack
  • 1 yard strip of ribbon or t-shirt fabric (optional)
  • pony beads (optional)
  • Zip Ties (optional)

DIRECTIONS:
  1. Prewash shorts without fabric softening. Do not dry.
  2. Prepare work surface by laying down a sheet of plastic, then put a baking rack on top.
  3. Mix dyes according to package instructions.
  4. Bind the right side of the shorts with a rubber band or zip tie.
  5. Squeeze the green dye directly over the zip tie area. Squeeze the pink dye onto the gathered end. Leave a little space of white between the pink and green dye. The dye naturally seeps together, so no need to over-dye.
  6. Cover the shorts with some plastic wrap and let it set for 6-8 hours.
  7. Once dye has set, cut off zip tie and rinse out the color in the sink. Be careful to keep the white part of the shorts away from the dye being rinsed out, so the white area doesn't dye. Once finished rinsing, throw the shorts in the dryer or let them air dry.
  8. Apply crystals using heat-setting tool in seed shapes as shown. Use about six crystals for each seed. Or make seeds by free handing the design with some Tulip Soft Paint or Tulip Fabric Markers.
  9. For another fun touch, snip the bottom leg of the shorts (the side opposite of the watermelon pattern) with scissors and weave in a piece of tshirt fabric or ribbon. Tie at the side in a bow and add pony beads.
