I travel the world and am truly amazed with the sights, cultures, and people but in my eyes there is no place like home.

Tie Dye Sneak Peek

We decided on tie dyed tank tops for the Half Marathon Sunday as I dropped the ball on getting custom shirts made. I purchased basic white singlet dri-fit tanks at Target, rubber bands, and two boxes of purple Rit Dye. Here is a sneak peak of the tanks that are sure to make us extra fast and full of energy:

Look how nice and dark purple they look:

Turns out dri-fit doesn’t seem to take dye very well? Once removed from the dye and rinsed, the tanks became a very pastel lavender instead of a dark purple. Has anyone had success with dri-fit and tie dye? Photos of the finished product to come after the Half – although truthfully they look a bit dull. I hate when projects don’t turn out perfect! Aeisha loved chasing the rubber bands around the house whenever she got a hold of one. It tired her out as you can tell from these photos.
