tie-dyeing a heart shape
Message: I am tiedying some prefold diapers (flat ones) and can't find how to make a heart shape fold for dying my diapes. Do you know how to or where to go?
Yes, you can either sew it, as described on "FAQ: How do you tie-dye letters of the alphabet?", reinforcing the sewing with a ruybber band on top, or you can draw the heart on your cloth with a pencil, fold it in half vertically, and pleat along the line. It's pretty easy. There are nice drawings of the latter process on the Tie-dyed.com web site; see the April 2005 Monthly Tie-up. There are even better instructions, for the sewing method, in Sulfiati Harris's $5 book, "Rainbow Tie Dye", with color photos on the cover.
