Tie Dye your Converse shoes


Wanna spruce up a pair of new white Converse kicks?  Make yours truly original with the help of Tulip® One-Step Tie Dye!  iLoveToCreate designer Allee Marderosian created this pair with just a few simple products. Here's how you make them!

Tie Dye Converse Kicks
by Allee Marderosian

Supplies:
– White converse
Tulip® Fabric Marker (black)
– spray bottle

How you do it:
1. Remove shoe laces and wet laces.  Mix up turquoise dye and soak/saturate laces in the dye.
2. Mix up brown and pink dyes and pour them into a plastic bowl. Carefully use sponge brushes to sponge on dye onto fabric, being very careful not to get the dye on the rubber areas.
3. Cover the shoes and laces each in their own bag (as not to mix the colors). Let set for 6-8 hours. 
4. Fully rinse dyed fabric in warm water until all extra dye is removed and water runs clear.
5. Fill washer to large load setting with hottest water suitable for the fabric and a small amount of laundry soap.
6. Accent/doodle around selected areas with a black Tulip® Fabric Marker.

Allee says you can do your own color combinations and play with the colors.  If you're a little timid to try on a more expensive pair of shoes, you could always try this on plain canvas shoes until you are comfortable with your skills!
