Alien Cane - Polymer Clay Crafts


Being stuck in the house during the freezing tundra of our North Dakota winter environment had us watching way too many polymer clay crafting videos these last few weeks and of course we had the urge to go out and buy some clay to play with...so we did. This is what happened, now life will never be the same again.

๐Ÿ‘ฝ

Shout out to MO clays Youtube channel, totally hooked us and inspired the motivation to do our first Alien cane. Which turned out pretty freakin stellar if you ask us!

This cane was actually made with some super old Craftsmart clay I got at Michaels at least 4 years ago when I worked there. Since this was our first time playing with clay we decided to see if we could get the old stuff to work before we broke open the huge sampler pack of Primo Clay we just got. It was hard AF and almost got chucked in the trash honestly. Our hands became very sore after trying to roll out only two packs of old clay so we gave up, got a dope clay roller and smashed the clay up enough to revive it. Then used it to create smaller canes to put together to form this alien cane an a handful of other fun beads! We ran out of black to surround the alien with so thats why it ends up looking like Slimer the ghost. Doh.

All this was from 5 packs of clay, whaaa?!


Take me to your crafter

Reducing the cane, I could of done it nicer 






Orders from our Etsy Tie Dye shop will get a free
Alien bead as a gift with your purchase,
until supplies run out.

Baked at 245°F for 15 mins. on tshirt/fabric














The square ones with added gray around are my fave!

We still have a shit ton of left overs & canes from the craftsmart clay we plan on chopping up and making Heishi Beads with. They are so cool and I'm excited to make some pendants and earrings with the totally psychedelic creations. So far we've crafted up a few and we love the way the colors meld with one another making an ooak blotter totem type of effect, almost like they way the dye bonds with the fabric in tie dyeing.

Do YOU make polymer clay crafts?
We'd love to see your creations and tips,
drop a LINK below for all to see.

Living Coral = Pantone Color of the Year 2019




To tell the truth I haven't used a coral color "purposely" in a tie dye for years. Many shades of coral have shown up with ice dying lately and I have been totally digging the look. I find it intriguing to play around with the color Coral this year.

Color Inspiration is everywhere!

Fabric Scrubbies - Tie Dye Sewing Crafts


Playing with tie dye scraps has always been a fun thing for me to do. Once I got a serger all kinds of small creations happened! This is the first trial of a current & quick lil' project I'm still perfecting. 

Cut out scraps
Ready to be serged


These upcycled & repurposed cloth wipes have helped me around the house with no waste provided from them. My toddlers even love using them to clean up after meals and snacks. They've learned so much independence while having a blast!


Cleaning up meal time messes

Kids love to be independent!

A few sets of assorted designs & styles are and more will be listed in small trial packs for now. I'm working on designing them in a more durable way such as being top stitched, more absorbant and in larger bundles next year.

So much scraps, so little time to craft!

If you do happen to purchase a trial set please let me know what you think of them. Feedback is always appreciated to better my craft. Thanks!

Shop Incense - Behind the Doors of Moon Dyes


Ho Ho Ho ๐ŸŽ…
Santa "Amazon" brought the shop some of the dopest smelling Incense ever!

https://www.amazon.com/gp/search/ref=as_li_qf_sp_sr_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=moondyes-20&keywords=satya incense&index=aps&camp=1789&creative=9325&linkCode=ur2&linkId=e82b72a64261e10566f7504a4a849029

We burn incense in the shop so our inventory smells like you got it from a groovy lil' hippie boutique. Reminds me of one of my favorite stores growing up in Fargo, ND named "One World". Sadly it has now closed here so I like to keep the wonderfully rad smelling tradition alive with our Moon Dyes goods!

Ice Dying Experiments - Batch #2

Working from the high of our last ice dying outcome Batch #1 and my expectations are more of a "Deep Sea Mermaid" type of vibe. 

I had hand tied up a bunch of kids stuff, tanks for me an a few table runners & wall hangings to do these ice dying batch experiments throughout the month of December. This way if the projects turned out like shit we'd just have shit tie dyes to wear at home lol. Newbie here at Ice Dying so this is working out wonderfully and the dyes are so far too, hopefully I can keep it up.

Anyway back to the dying...

Colors used:
Sea Glass - Dharma Trading Co. 
Blue Violet - Dharma Trading Co.
Turquoise - Custom Colours


Tied Up

Sprinkled Dye

"Ice Ice Baby"

Melted AF

Needless to say I was really excited to rinse these interesting creations an after I did I was well, not expecting what it turned out to be. Who the heck would actually know whats gonna happen right?! That's the addicting part of any kind of fabric dying to me! ๐ŸŽจ You can do the same design and use the same colors but never get the same results.

To tell the truth I was a tish bit disappointed at first but after it washed & dried I was totally getting into the ooak patterns and color combo of these goods. I'm aiming towards a brighter style next time I dye a rainbow. ๐ŸŒˆ

What do YOU think?

Deep Sea Mermaid

Fun Fact:
The toddlers tee and socks were gifted to two giveaway winners!

Sadly the dope table runner has a defect in the fabric an I just don't think it's listable for that. I'll more then likely keep it for an Ostara & Easter table runner! Perks of my job, I get to gift or keep all the messed up stuff.

Ice Dying Experiments - Batch #1

Soooooo
we've been super busy these past almost 4 years since we had two lil' boys in a row and never really got into the new fad of "Ice Dying" or "Snow Dying" in the tie dye world. Finally our kiddos have given us some time to get back into dying and we just have to give this Ice Dying a try.

I've seen some pretty amazing creations by rad dyers pop up on FB tie dye groups, Instagram and Etsy so I'm pretty damn excited to see what we can do, or at least be able to laugh my ass off over our horrible outcomes. Either way it should be fun.

Jason whipped up this first batch on Sunday 12-2-18 and at first I wasn't too impressed but after the items dried I was totally diggin' them!

He used:
Kingfisher - Dharma Trading Co.
Orange - Custom Colours
Cerulean - Custom Colours
Green - Custom Colours

Chillin'

Almost melted

Geode kids tees & socks!

Inclined Dyed Hoodie

The finished products were so interesting,
I decided to do another batch of ice dyes that night by myself!
See that outcome on my blog post:

*The tie dye stockings used in this giveaway are two of the first ones created, have some minor sewing flaws to them an are kind of skinny but still functional. You will not be receiving a perfect gift but a pretty damn cool one that can be used as decor if anything. The gifts inside it are just a bonus! I lined them both with a spacey black fabric and doubled up the cuff to ensure durability. Hand sewed a few tiny jingle bells on the cuffs points and put a matching tab on it to hang for the Holidaze! Hoping to get a few more made perfectly and listed in our Etsy shop early December. 





Fun Fact:
These Holiday stocking were upcycled from our 2015 xmas tiedye shirts!
We only wore them once and just for this Family photo.
