My inner hippie is silently smiling and dancing in circles in a cute maxi dress lisenting to Bob Marley right now. In reality, I am sitting at my desk in corporate work clothes working “very hard on this project”. Obviously I hide my inner hippie dippiness for the weekends.
While at work a few weeks ago I came across this idea for Indigo Dye Napkins. My inner hippie screamed “WEEEEE! Modern tye dye for my house!” It was love at first sight. The kit is very straight forward. Once you mix the dye and let it sit for an hour you fold your fabric into any shape, then let it soak in water.
Once soaked, you submerge the fabric in the solution for 1 minute. When it first comes out it is green and blue. After it hits the air it oxidizes and turns a deeper shade of blue over time. Next comes the fun stage when you can cut off the rubber bands and see your designs!
Andy Man definitely does not have an inner hippie in him. I tried to get him to fold the fabric or submerge it in the solution. Didn’t happen. He watched from the screen door with a look that said “Wow, my wife is a hippie” And now we have tye dye napkins for our kitchen table!
Happy inner hippie day!
