Tie Dye and Life

April 6, 2017

A little more tie dye.  Tie Dye is labor intensive and if you sell one say for $25.00, at a shop, the shop takes 40%.  On Etsy sell it for $25.00, subtract cost of tee and dye, part of postage and a small percentage to Etsy.  Comes out to maybe $1.00 per hour.  I am slow.

I love to tie dye.  Masochistic?  No.  There are so many elements of dyeing that require personal, hands on, direct, immediate attention.  Let’s call it creativity.  Creativity alive and throbbing.

What moves you?

I’ll get to the life part tomorrow.  Meanwhile here (I hope) is a tee I did recently.
