Tie-Dye Summer Craft Project With Your Kids

Tie-dying is the perfect summer craft project that allows you to soak up the sun and enjoy some quality time with your kids while they are home from school. Encouraging hands-on arts and crafts projects for your kids can improve their creativity abilities while having a great experience. Most people may be turned off by the potential mess and staining of tie-dye, but if you follow these directions the only problem will be making sure your entire wardrobe isn’t tie dyed.
First thing is gathering the supplies. Keep in mind that organization will help lower the chances of having a big mess to clean up at the end of the project. Beverly’s can be your one-stop shop for all the supplies, which will make your summer tie-dying experience with your kids more enjoyable and stress free.

Tie-Dye Shirt

Tie-Dying Supplies:

• Any White Fabric - Shirts, pants, swimsuits, sheets, towels etc.
• Plastic Trash Bags – To line the work area and store tie dyed items as the color sets
• Rubber Bands and/or string - A generous amount
• Rubber Gloves – Protect your hands from getting stained
• Buckets and/or Squirt Bottles – To mix and apply dye (the buckets and bottles will get stained)
• Old Spoon – To stir dye in buckets
• Soda Ash – Sodium carbonate to pre-treat the fabric which creates more vibrant coloring
• Rags and/or Paper Towels – Just in case!
• Dye – Wide variety of colors and remember mixing certain colors can create others

Tie-Dying Directions:

1. Start with pre-washing all fabric items in the Soda Ash and hot water, then rinse and set aside.

2. Prepare dye according to the directions on the box. Keep in mind the water-to-dye ratio, more water the lighter the color and vice versa. Be sure your wearing your rubber gloves!

3. Take each piece of fabric, lay flat and tie as desired. Let your creative energy flow and it will turn out great. Check out some tie-dye methods & patterns on Wikipedia.

4. Now start applying the dye. The options are endless, use multiple colors, dye by section or just apply the dye and hope for the best. One simple rule of thumb if using more than one color: Start with light colors.

5. According to brand of dye, rinse immediately after or wait a given amount of time. Most dyes require the tie-dyed items to set for 24 hours in a plastic bag, which helps increase the intensity and wear-time of the colors.

6. Wash all containers, surfaces etc. that were exposed to dye with soap and water.

7. Once the tie-dyed fabrics have set, wash in cold water and separate from other clothing.

Tie-dye summer craft projects can engage the entire family this season. Come pick up the needed supplies at your local Beverly’s Fabric & Crafts or shop at I recommend the Tulip® One Step Fashion Dye™ for purchasing individual colors. Also available are convenient tie-dye kits, so depending on your preference Beverly’s can supply it. Have a great summer with your kids and Happy Tie-Dying!

Here are a few fun tie-dye sites to check out for more inspiration:

Zhu Zhu Pets Are Here!

The best alternatives to real live hamsters, Zhu Zhu Pets™ hamsters are a riot of motion and sound. Darting around in their hamster tubes, busily scurrying from room to room, you never know where they'll go next! Zhu Zhu Pets are the world's first innovative, realistic, interactive, plush, and artificially intelligent hamsters that talk and move around in their own playsets. They include two play modes: nurturing mode where the hamsters coo and purr, and adventure mode where the hamsters explore their habitat with intelligent audio and mechanical responses to various habitat stimuli. Add-ons can be purchased to build an ever-evolving hamsterworld for your hamsters to play in and explore.

Zhu Zhu Pets are the newest craze among kids and expected to be the most popular toy of the year. They're only available in limited quantities in Soquel, Monterey, Santa Rosa, Rocklin, San Luis Obispo and Modesto... So visit your local Beverly's store soon before they all scurry off! :)

Happy New Year!!

We've made a little Valentine Pocket for each of our stores to display. A perfect place to store your valentines.

Click here for instructions. Here is a little tip for you when you go to make the flourish design out of rhinestones. We used Fade-resistand Dye Ink by Memento (Lady Bug) to stamp a flourish design on the red paper. Now add the adhesive rhinestone in any color following the lines of the flourish. The red ink just about disappears - check the sample in the store : )

The crumpled flowers are all the rage now. You could even you text from an old book (and layer 6-10 hearts) or old valentine cards. Get creative and see what you come up with.

Kids will enjoy leaving notes for family members in this pocket or you could fill with silk flowers. Let us know how you plan to use yours. We'd love to see some pictures.
