Step 4 Place rubber band about 1" from the top, and continue banding every 2"-3" along length of fabric.
Step 5 Prepare dye following package instructions.
Step 6 Apply dye colors between banded sections: Yellow to center section, Fuchsia to middle section and Turquoise to outer section.
Step 7 Cover fabric with plastic table cover. Let set 6-8 hours.
Step 8 Rinse fabric in warm water until water runs clear. Remove rubber bands.
Step 9 Fill washer to large load setting with hottest water suitable for fabric and a small amount of non-bleach laundry detergent. Wash and dry separately for the first few washes.
