Everything old is new again...

I don't know if everyone remembers the days of tie dyed t-shirts....I certainly do. It seems though that it is all coming back going by what I've seen in the shops this summer.

My son was invited to an 18th birthday party and the theme was....yes, you guessed it....tie dye!
So of course he had to do his own (and some for friends too).Here's his efforts - his is the orange one and he was really pleased with it.

Nice results - but I wasn't too sure about the buckets in my bath tub and the fact that I am still finding rubber bands in my laundry. I think he was thinking about going into business but hopefully I was able to talk him out of that.

Who would have thought that back in the 70's when I was tie dying T-shirts I would use those skills to instruct someone else so many years later. Sometimes I do get to be a 'cool' mother.

Nice T Shirts your son tie dyed.
Funny how everything comes back into fashion. Perhaps we should have keep all our old clothes and shoes. LOL

It certainly brought back memories for me too! In the 60s we used to use string but rubber bands are so much easier.
