DIY Watermelon shorts

The DIY fabric dyeing technique shown for this watermelon short can be used with any fabric dye project your creative mind will think of :) One useful trick before trying this for yourself; the dye will fix best on 100% cotton fabric, or other natural fibers. Synthetic fibers are water repellant, which means they will prevent the colored water (your dye) from penetrating the fabric.

Material:

-Thrifted white shorts (100% cotton is the best.. 98% cotton will work as well)
-Tulip Fabric Dye Kit
-Pebeo SetaSkrib fabric Marker

All material available online here
