Indigo makeup ideas inspired by tie dye

We’ve got to be honest, when we heard tie dye was making a comeback we were a tad skeptical, but of course our 90s tie dye experience is a lot different from what we’re enjoying right now. So far we’ve brought the dyeing trend in recent Mollie Makes issues including number 40‘s Rope Basket by Bianca Hall, issue 30‘s dip dyed kimono by Leanne Garrity, and in issue 32 we tried the Japanese shibori technique on a scarf project by Donna Bramhall.
