Spread a the plastic sheet or garbage bag out.
Bunch or fold up sections of the T-shirt, and wrap them tightly with
the rubber bands or string. These will be the areas that will stay white
after the shirt is dyed, forming a pattern.
It’s tough to predict exactly what kinds
of patterns your t-shirt will end up with—but that’s
the fun of making one!
Prepare the dye in the bucket according to the manufacturerís directions.
Wearing gloves, dip the shirt or a section of it in the dye until itís
the color you want.
Squeeze out the excess dye, then rinse the T-shirt in the sink until
the water runs clear.
Leaving the rubber bands or string on, lay the shirt on the plastic
sheet or garbage bag to dry. Outside is best.
Once you get the hang of it, you can use more
than one color—start with the lightest, and let the shirt
dry completely before doing a new one.!
Remove the rubber bands or strings. Itís easiest to cut them with scissors.
Before you wear it, wash your shirt in cold water alone or with clothing
thatís the same color, since the dye may run. Be sure to accessorize
with love beads and a peace sign.
