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).

The husband had a white shirt he didn’t know what to do with, so Gabrielle made him 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!

Admittedly, that greyish stripe was MEANT to be a brownish-green. I’m going to have to test the dye. Dye expires after a certain time, and I suspect the brown may have reached that time.

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.

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.
