Before you get started on this colorful craft, prewash your sweatsuit to remove any sizing. Leave the fabric damp and fold and bind your sweatshirt using the spiral tie-dye technique. Pinch the fabric the center and twist into a swirl. Keep twisting the fabric tightly until the entire garment is formed into a spiral shape. Use 3 rubber bands to hold your spiraled fabric in place, crisscrossing the rubber bands to create 6 wedge shapes. Repeat this process with your sweatpants.
Mix the tie dye solutions according to package instructions. J-Lo’s rocking a classic rainbow spiral, but you can choose any colors you’d like! Apply one color of dye to each section of your sweatsuit. Wrap, let set 6-8 hours, rinse, wash, and reveal!
