Tie Dye Cotton Drawstring Bag | Posh Pooch Designs

Tie Dye Cotton Drawstring Bag Crochet Pattern 
By Sara Sach of  
I have been having so much fun learning about how to tie Dye.

First I did T- Shirts - LINK

Next,  I did Cotton Yarn -LINK
And Then I thought, What if I made something, from the cotton yarn first, and then tie dyed it.

I chose to do my 
 Mesh Drawstring Bag Crochet
 Pattern at this LINK

This is How I did it!

I crocheted the bag
 using white 
100% Cotton yarn.

I Tie Dyed
 it the way I did
 the T- Shirts. 

I soaked the
Bag in a
Table Spoon of
 Pure Baking Soda
for about
 30 minutes.

I rinsed and wrung  
out the bag.

Then banded 
the bag.
Corner to Corner 

Next, I began
to dye the banded sections
of the bag
with the dye 
I had left from 
my T-Shirt Projects

(Link Above)

After the bag was 
all dyed
I gently slid it into
a zip bag.

I let it rest for 8 hours 

I slid the bag out of
 the plastic bag and began 
to rinse it with cold water. 

I removed the bands,
and added a 
Table Spoon of Vinegar.

I rinsed it again
 with warm water, 
til the water ran clear.

I wrung out the bag,
and hung it out on my
deck to dry.

I really love
 how the 
stripes of
 Color turned out.
All Dry and ready to be used.
I LOVE IT!!!!!
Now..... What can I tie dye next?
