We made these magical reverse tie dye lounge sets by first, reverse dyeing the fabric, and second, applying our design made with Siser® EasyWeed heat transfer vinyl!
It’s back to school time for muggles AND wizards, and we’re gonna show you how to show your house pride with these DIY sets! These reverse tie dye lounge sets are so cute and easy to make, and nothing will make you feel more like a wizard than creating custom clothes using the NEW Siser® EasyWeed Apricot. This new color is just one of TWELVE new Siser’s EasyWeed® colors that have ve launched this August. Siser’s packed more neutrals and warm mochas into their EasyWeed lineup, so make sure to check out their website for more details!

How to make a Reverse Tie Dye Lounge Set
Step 1: With the lounge set top laying flat, scrunch in an arc from the bottom left side, up and over to the right elbow. Secure with a rubber band. Scrunch in a smaller arc on the left shoulder, and secure with a rubber band. With the lounge set bottoms laying flat, scrunch in an arc from the top left side, down and over to the right leg.
Step 2: Apply bleach on the fabric from the rubber band to the outer edge. Remove the rubber bands, and lay each piece flat in the sun. Note: When applying bleach, always wear gloves and set up in a well-ventilated area.
Step 3: Let the bleach sit for a few minutes to lighten the fabric. When the desired color is reached, rinse the set in a hydrogen peroxide bath (1:10 hydrogen peroxide to water) to deactivate the bleach and stop the color from changing further.
Step 4: Wash and dry the lounge set.
Step 5: Cut your design (we found ours on Etsy) from heat transfer vinyl and apply to the top with a heat press or iron.
