I’m physically disabled but love craft and art, I’m keen on tie dying but most fabric dyes cost at least $10-$20 a colour for not that much I have two daughters with Autism 18 and 17 so I want to have enough for them but being on pensions it gets costly most of supplies I get from op shops and specials but I’ve been unable to find cost effective dyes as we’re not selling them it’s for ourselves or gifts. Can anyone please give me any and all ideas for cost effective fabric dye pretty please.

  • If you are close to the area of Cabramatta they have HEAPS of fabric shops which sell them for cheap – $5 would be the most you’d pay.

  • Spotlight have a 18 colour kit for $49 atm. Ebay is great aswell, have you looked into using powders instead?

  • My sons recently loving tie dying and I was on the hunt as well. This was a great pack. Which worked out $4 ish a bottle. The colours were just lovely and vibrant! Recommend this pack. It’s also free shipping with a catch membership.

  • I’d look at Spotlight, officeworks, or somewhere online like amazon
