Gabrielle’s on university holidays right now, and she’s been filling her new-found spare time with tie-dye (between rock-climbing, Ultimate Frisbee, and training for a half marathon, of course).

But she’s always up for another project, so she made the husband this green tie-dye shirt, using the fan fold tie-dye pattern with black dye over the top.

Result? A funky fan tie-dye shirt in a range of greens. Watch how she made it below!

I think it’s a brilliant tie-dye pattern and colourway, but green is my favourite colour, so I’m always going to like green tie-dye!

Overall, it makes a fantastic men’s tie-dye shirt. It’s colourful but not too over-the-top, and the fan tie-dye pattern is easy to do but looks great.

And if you love this green colour palette, pin it on Pinterest for later and check out all my tie-dye colour palettes for more great ideas.

We use Procion dyes, but if you want something a little simpler Tulip tie-dye kits are a great option.

Thanks for watching! We’d love to hear if you decide to try it and DIY your own tie dyes. Tag @dyediyhq on Instagram or Facebook and we’ll check it out.

Ice-dyeing can be surprising...and not always in a good way. When you open up the shirt you pictured as a lovely gradient of browns and greys and find splotches of hot pink and bright blue instead, it's not a happy accident - my first experiment with Dharma's Shiitake...

      Thank you! Just black dye, a fairly strong mix.

    Were there 2 sections you used black, besides spraying at the end? It’s hard to tell.

      Hi Jim, the only black used was the spray at the end. This was one of our first videos, hopefully they’ve gotten a bit clearer as we learn!
