Tie-dye is quickly becoming one of the biggest print trends for spring and summer. It's the perfect mix of trendy and nostalgic and adds playfulness to any outfit. I have been looking for a new one for a while but couldn't find a color combination I loved. About a week ago, a friend of mine posted an adorable tie-dye sweatshirt that she had made at home. After a few DMs, she explained that she used ice and powder dye to create the effect. I immediately got instructions and went on Amazon and ordered the following: Tulip One-Step Tie-Dye Kit 15-Color Party Kit, Standard, Rainbow ($14), Hanes Women's V-Notch Pullover Fleece Sweatshirt ($9), and Bamboo Ankle Socks ($14).

I haven't ordered anything but groceries and essentials for the past month and was very excited to have a creative project lined up for the weekend — especially one that would result in something fun I could wear. Turns out, the process was really easy and not messy (which can be an issue with tie-dye projects). Here's exactly how I made my sweatshirt and socks.
