DIY Ice Dye
It's time to ice dye! It's basically cool tie dying. This process is much easier than regular tie dying and it looks so much cooler! This DIY tutorial comes from the creative people at Yen.

Materials

For this DIY project, you will need:
-- Whatever you want to dye (a t-shirt, a pillow, a bag, etc.)
-- Washing soda, also called soda ash (you should be able to find this at a craft store)
-- Rubber gloves (wear for the entire time you are doing this project)
-- Ice
-- Dye powder (you can find this at a craft store)
-- Large plastic tub
-- Cooling rack

Soak the garment in washing soda

Prepare a mixture of washing soda. Use 1 cup of washing ash and 1 gallon of water. Soak the garment in the washing soda mixture for about 15 minutes. Remove the garment from the washing soda mixture and wring out any excess liquid. Scrunch up the garment and place on a cooling rack in the large plastic tub (as shown in the picture).

Cover the garment with ice and add dye

Cover the garment completely with ice cube. Then, take the dye powder and sprinkle it over the ice and the garment. The more dye you use, the more intense the colors on your garment will be. Let the ice completely melt and let the garment dry for 24 hours. Then, wash the garment by itself by rinse all of the dye and then throwing it in the washing machine.

question, and I don't know if you'd know this, but if I'm trying to ice dye a pillow (like in the pictures) do I take fabric or pillow cases and dye them then making them into my finished pillows or can I just dye a plain white pillow ?

@marinagolovan I would recommend dying a pillow case just because that fabric is better for dying than the fabric on the outside of pillow cases.
