Yes, I love dyeing onesies!

And with friends popping out babies all over the place I’ve got plenty of excuses to keep dyeing them.

I decided to try something a little bit different for these, and make ice-dyed onesies.

I used single dye colours that would split (separate into a range of shades) and I think the results are rather beautiful.

I used Procion dyes for these ice-dyed onesies, but if you want something a little simpler Tulip tie-dye kits are a great option.

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