Tie Dye T - Shirts...

My daughter and her friend created their own tie dye t-shirts. 

First, soak your t-shirt in a bowl with a 1/2 cup vinegar and enough water water to cover for 30 minutes. 

Remove the t-shirt and wring all of the vinegar-water out. 

Now, scrunch up and twist together sections of the t-shirt, holding them secure with rubber bands. 

When done, drop on the food coloring, letting it bleed through the fabric. 

Put your t-shirt in a bowl and set it out in the warm sunshine for a few hours and, when it feels nice and warm, rinse it in water until the water runs clear. 

Then, hang it up on a hanger outside until dry. 

It was messy but fun and the results were pretty good.
