Make the pattern

Lay your clean hoodie out on a hard surface, and either using strings or rubber bands, crinkle the mid-section and tie each bulge.

For the sleeves, do the same method. However, I focused more on the bottom sections. I also tied the hoodie area so that the whole hoodie would have a touch of color!

Soak in water

Now, soak the whole hoodie in water. I used a bucket filled with water and simply soaked the hoodie for a couple of seconds, making sure it was all wet.

Add the dye

I have pre-prepared the dye colors in plastic cups. If you haven't done so, now is a good time to do it! Then, lay your hoodie out on a flat surface, throw on some rubber gloves, and start adding the dye. 


I added some salt to the dye as it will help hold the color.

Drizzle the dye with a paintbrush on the tied areas of the hoodie. Be sure to add dye on both the front and back areas.

Continue doing this method with the other colors. You can even pour the dye directly from the cup onto the hoodie for a more intense effect. 

Leave to dry

When you're satisfied with the tie-dye, place your hoodie in a plastic bag for a few hours. 

Finish off the basic tie-dye hoodie

Once your hoodie is dry, remove the strings or elastic and wash the hoodie in a washing machine.

Here's the final look! It's so enchanting and colorful, don't you think? I love how the colors blend well together. It's so unique and simply magical. It's so quick to make a tie-dye hoodie, and you can literally use this process for any other items you have. I hope you enjoyed this tie-dye hoodie tutorial.
