Tulip Tie Dye Your Summer

Here's a cool bullseye t-shirt a friend made. She said it was fun, easy and a great learning experience.  She's ready to go buy some Tulip dye and make some more.
The Tulip Tie Dye Your Summer van rolled into San Luis Obispo yesterday at the Old Navy store for a fun-filled day of creativity.  Old Navy supplied the shirts and ilovetocreate supplied the Tulip One Step Tie Dye so everyone created and took home a free tie dyed shirt.  We had 'kids' of all ages creating shirts - one dad was out shopping and stopped to make a shirt for his daughter's eighth birthday today.  He said she loves making things so she'd be surprised at his creation.  We had entire families making shirts, we had little tiny kiddos who had to have a little help from mom or dad, we had college students - it was a fun-filled creative day.

One Mom said her daughter's birthday is in November and they can't do fun activities that time of year so she was going to have an end of the school year tie dye party next week.  Tulip has several ways to buy the dye and they even have a couple of large kits that make up to 24 shirts - look in your local paper or on line for discount coupons.  Instead of handing out sugary party favors, the kids get an entertaining activity at the party, something to take home and a  reminder of the fun party every time they wear the shirt.  I mentioned to the mom to look on line because there are tons of tie dye food ideas too! 

If you're in the San Luis Obispo area don't forget the van (and I) will be at the Farmer's Market on Thursday, July 18th from 6 - 8.  More details as we get closer to this fun event.
