i LOVED our tie dye class, taught by shabd simon alexander.

there is something so satisfying about dyeing. it couldn’t be more different from the process of screen printing, but gives you the same thrill of creating patterned fabric.

the bottom two photos are my tie dyed pieces. i started out very conservative… making only muted colors, and then decided to go crazy with color.

thanks jen for making “tie dyed” cupcakes!
