Tie-Dye Party

Super Dad Steve O has been preparing for this party for weeks… he ordered all the supplies from Dharma Trading– a great resource for all things tie-dye, and they were off…

We made a trip to the local thrift store and picked up some white dyeables. We found these white pants that Q cut off and worked some magic on (go ahead and remark on the unfortunate placement of color…) she’ll just be able to discern which of her friends and family are polite and well mannered from, well, the rest.

Tank top for M (from the thrift store, thank you) turned out cute with the little white beads and stitching not dyed, good work on the collared shirt too.

Team broken arm, with the job of rinsing and ‘accidentally’ spraying each other quite a bit too, keep the cast dry please boys.

The team above all made themselves matching rasta colored tank tops. If it were me… the tank top would fit lengthwise, once I got it pulled down around my middle. But in their case, I think we are going to have to take off an inch or two to insure it doesn’t get mistaken as a skirt.

    That is some good tye-dying. So vibrant. I would not have noticed the awkward coloring of Q’s shorts had you not pointed it out. Funny.
