The two arts & crafts I’m reviewing are tie dye shirts by Katie from thecrafttrain.com and wish bracelets from happy hour projects by Adrianne Syrian.

Tie Dye shirt- Swirl pattern 

For the tie dye shirts I decided to do the Swirl tie dye pattern and used the colors purple, pink, and aqua. This was a fun project that I did with my sister. Some things that I recommend is to wear gloves as it is a little messy. Also do it outside so you don’t stain anything inside your house. One other thing is that after you tie dye it you have to leave it outside 9- 24 hours the longer you leave it outside the more time the shirt has to observe the color. I recommend leaving it outside as long as you can because when I did it, I didn’t leave outside, as long as I should have and the shirt turned out to have some splotches on it. Also, when washing the shirts add a little soap, cold water and don’t mix it with other clothes. When done hang it outside to dry. Other than that this was a really fun project and I enjoyed doing it. 

 

Wish bracelets

For the wish bracelets I used the wrong cord. I accidentally used hemp instead of hemp twine but it still turned out good. One thing I recommend while doing this project is to use a clipboard so it can hold the twine while your braiding. Also, this project was a little bit difficult and it took me a couple of tries to get it right. This is a fun project that you can do with your family and friends. I really enjoyed it and had fun doing it.
