For ease of reference, here are some tie-dye guides, graded in increasing order of complexity, you can follow:
- Wikihow has the easiest and clearest illustrations and instructions for how to start tie dyeing your one-of-a-kind red and white NDP T-Shirt. Visit Spotlight or Artfriend to purchase the right inks.
- See Parents.com for more detailed instructions and pattern fun for tie dyeing with kids.
- Check out favecrafts! They have another 18 innovative tie dye techniques you can try.
- And finally, here’s how the Japanese tie dye. They call it Shibori. Just imagine achieving these gorgeous designs in NDP red!
If tie dyeing not your cup of tea, purchase some fabric pens (also available at Spotlight and Artfriend) and get your kids to create unique T-shirts for the whole family.
Encourage drawing your family into NDP themes, Singapore national icons or significant landmarks.
Sign these off with the tag “Made in Singapore by… with love”.
We’d love to see your creations, so please post them online when you done!
Have a Happy Day!
