With me home from uni over the summer holidays, mum wanted me to make LOTS of tie-dye videos. I figured that I’d better keep her happy – especially as I get to keep everything I dye!

After a bit of research I decided to try a gradient spiral as my first project. It’s a fun way to add to the standard spirals that can become a bit repetitive after you’ve got a couple.

I used two shades of purple, two shades of blue and black Procion dyes from Dharma Trading Co. If you want something a little simpler Tulip tie-dye kits are also great. By blending them I got the variegated effect.

Watch below to see how I did it.

It turned out much better than I expected. I was a bit worried that I’d forgotten how to tie-dye. I’m pretty happy with it!

Love this pattern and colourway? Save the colour palette so you can recreate it!

Thanks for watching! If you decide to try it and DIY your own tie-dyed gradient spiral tag @dyediyhq on Instagram or Facebook. We’d love to check it out.
