Dye cushions with the batik technique

How to instructions

  • 1

    Use a white cushion cover. Wet the fabric and squeeze out excess water.

  • 2

    Make the ties, knots and pleats for your tie-dye. Pinch the centre of the cushion cover, allowing the rest of the fabric to drape around it to form a long roll.

  • 3

    Secure the roll with cotton string or rubber bands spaced a bit apart.

  • 4

    Pour fabric dye onto the roll. You can also experiment with using different colour dyes. For best results, leave a little gap between each colour. Leave the dye to soak into the roll for about one hour.

  • 5

    Snip off the ties/rubber bands and leave the fabric to dry.

  • 6

    Fix the dye in the oven at 150 °C for 5 minutes.

This liquid fabric dye has a great watercolour quality, making it perfect for recolouring cushion covers and other soft furnishings using tie-dye. This dye is suitable for use on white and pale-coloured cotton fabrics. For a stubborn stain on a cushion or towel, don't discard them, but upcycle and transform them using tie-dye for a stunning kaleidoscope of colours! Wear gloves and protect your work surface and clothes before starting. Your tie-dyed cushion covers are washable at 40 °C. Wash separately the first couple of times.
