DIY Bleach Tie Dye

Last summer, we were obsessed with shibori indigo tie dying. No, really . . . we just about dyed anything white in sight. So when Free People asked us to include a DIY in their guest blogger series, we knew a new tie dye project was absolutely in order. And as the weather is beginning to warm up, what better time than now to start experimenting with reverse tie dye using bleach! Black tees and tops: watch out!

You’ll need:
- a 100% cotton black shirt (we used this Free People tee)
- a few cups of bleach
- a bucket
- a pair of gloves
- a few rubber bands
- 2 flat shaped objects used for binding

M*A*S*H*

Last week, Lauren took me to her favorite army surplus store and I came this close to buying an amazing oversized vintage rucksack. She scored some pins and patches. I walked away with a hat and spent the rest of the day regretting passing on the bag. Don’t you hate it when that happens?! And now after seeing this military inspired editorial from Marie Claire Italia, I’m definitely going back . . .
