*I heard about tea dying through a Pinterest pin and loved the idea and decided a little interchangeable flower would be the perfect finishing touch*
-new pre-washed onsie or shirt (used onsies or shirts will cause uneven dying; I tried this first and had darker stain around drool prone spots)
-Black Tea (I also tried Koolaid and Green Tea...Black seemed to work best)
-Lace or embellishments
-needle and thread or sewing machine
-bowl and boiling hot water
Step 1 : Boil water and place tea bags into water. I used about 4 cups of water and 4 tea bags. Let the tea soak and stir it to mix evenly.
Step 3 : Wring out minimally and air dry onsie. Once it is air dried then wash and dry it in the laundry.
Step 5: Pin the lace loosely down on the garment to keep it in place. Sew the lace down. I used the thicker trim of my lace to hide the thread and only sewed the top edge.
*hopefully you should have a little excess lace on both edges of the garment like this*
*finished shirt with lace and loop. The thread loop somewhat blends in also so you don't have to attach anything if you chose*
