Fall doesn't have to be just reds, yellows, browns, and oranges— jewel tones are perfect for autumn and still give a great pop of color! This tutorial from Craft Box Girls will inspire you to make a stunning tie-dye sweatsuit that’s perfect for kids who love colorful fall fashion. Let your little ones craft and create their own custom tie-dye sweatsuit with the Tulip Desert One-Step Tie-Dye Kit!
Kids’ sweatshirt and sweatpants
Protective surface cover
Wire rack + sheet tray (optional)
Before you get started on this tie-dye sweatsuit, prewash the clothes that you’ll be dyeing and leave them damp. Have your kiddo pick out which colors they’d like to use for this project and prepare the tie dye solutions. The Tulip Desert One-Step Tie-Dye Kit is full of gorgeous jewel tones and awesome earthy tones that are great for autumn!
Fold and bind the kids’ sweatsuit using your desired technique. For this project, Craft Box Girls used the simple and kid-friendly crumple technique! Place the sweatsuit onto a protected work surface or onto a wire rack + sheet tray combo to collect any excess dye.
Now it’s time to have fun with tie dye! Apply the dyes to the sweatsuit and use gloved hands to work the dyes into the fabric, checking to ensure the dyes have penetrated the folds. Wrap the kids’ tie-dye sweatsuit with plastic and let set for 6-8 hours.
Rinse, wash in cool water with a little laundry detergent, dry, and reveal! Your kids’ tie-dye sweatsuit is now ready for all of their autumn adventures.
