Prepare your squeeze bottles with dye according to package instructions, we’re using Tulip’s One-Step Tie Dye Kit.
Wet your backpack and squeeze out any excess water leaving it damp, but not soaking wet.
Cover the surface you’ll be working on. Spread the backpack flat onto the covered surface while it’s still damp.
Holding the dye upside down, without squeezing, allow the colored dye to drip onto the backpack. Move it around or create a pattern however you’d like. Alternate colors as you see fit.
Once you’ve reached your desired color combination, place the backpack in a plastic bag or garbage bag to sit for around 8 hours or overnight.
Rinse the backpack using warm water. Switch to cool water, then back to warm, ending with cool water. Follow with running through the washing machine.
Expert Tips & FAQs
Try to avoid dripping colors over the top of each other. You can do so to fill in gaps if you’d like, but dripping too much may create a muddy color. You want a little bit of white space between the colors as the dye will expand as it sits.
