How to make a simple bullseye pattern:

Step 1:

Pinch the top layer of fabric from the center of the pillow cover.

Step 2:

Wrap a rubber band around every 2-4 inches of the fabric. You’re creating sections to block out the dyes and make the pattern.

Step 3:

Wearing gloves, mix the dyes according to package directions. Over a sink, squeeze the dye onto both sides of the pillow cover, alternating colors on each section of the fabric. Make sure you wring out any excess liquid. Allow the colors to set for 10 minutes.

Step 4:

Cut the rubber bands and lay the pillow cover flat on paper until it has dried. Insert a pillow and you’re done! Make sure you wash the covers separately the first few times to prevent the colors from bleeding onto the rest of your laundry.
