A different kind of Tie Dye

You will need:
90% alcohol (put in a spray bottle)
color permanent markers
white t-shirt
(you can even apply to different things, like canvas bags)
cardboard
This type of tie-dye is a little different. First, you choose a design. Next, put some cardboard inside the shirt. Draw your design using dots (for example, instead of drawing with lines, I drew dots in a heart shape). You can even just do dots all over the shirt and create a traditional tie dye look. Then, you put 90% alcohol in a spray bottle and saturate the design area, leaving the shirt flat, until dry. This way it can distribute evenly.

If you use bleach in a squirt bottle it works similar on a dark colored shirt. You use hydrogen peroxide to stop the bleach from continuing to eat away the shirt.

This is a super cute and easy project! It looks like you don't have to be too precise and that is my favorite kind!
