Pleated Space Dye

This technique is so simple and so interesting and eye-catching. The dying part is much simpler than tie-dying as you don't have to fiddle around with the elastic bands. I have used cotton but it would work on many materials, eg. jersey, cotton, first you have to soak the material in a sodium solution to keep the dye from washing out. You then simply put the material in a microwavable container and sprinkle the powder dye (I used dylon) across the material where you want it to go. Finally, microwave for 2 minutes then wash off and leave to dry, viola! I have then pleated the material for a different finished look.
