No-Sew Tie Dye Kimono

Kimonos are everywhere.
Every time I look in  a magazine I see a Kimono.
 This Kimono you can make
out of a XL men's T-shirt and some Tulip Tie-Dye .
I think I am going to use it as one of my beach cover ups.
Things you need
 XL T-shirt
2 Studs *Optional

  Cut up the middle of your shirt 
You are going to cut out a 4 inch section in the middle
and then cut around the collar.

 Your shirt will look like the picture above.
 Cut off the hem and then cut your fringe about 4 to 5 inches long.
 Stretch out your fringe.
 Accordion fold your shirt.
On the left side of the shirt rubber band 4 sections .
Then on the right  side rubber band 5 sections,
 in between what you rubber banded on the left
 Then rubber band again each section
 until you can not rubber band any more.
 Put a rubber band in the middle of the shirt.

 Fill up your dye to the line with warm water.
 Place your shirt into a bowl.
I used the turquoise color first and then the darker blue to fill any white left.
Place it in a zip lock bag.
 Let it sit over night.
Then rinse out until the shirt rinses clean and let dry.
 I placed a stud on the seam at the shoulder
so the seams would not come apart. 
If you do not have studs, 
You could glue this or hand stitch this as well.

 I love the pattern

 Looks like a skull with a crown.
 Tie dye is a fun and easy way to create all kinds of Fun designs
 on Shirts, Shorts, Shoes the possibilities are endless
It is always a surprise when you open it up
Every one of them comes out different.
Have a wonderful Week.
Lots of love.
