and i might add, it doesn't look half bad! :)
i wish i had better pictures to show, but these will have to suffice! :)
here's how i did it:
i got a plain white tee that wasn't doing anything in my closet
and a big piece of cardboard.
i put the cardboard inside the shirt, so that the front and back of the shirt didn't touch.
then i used the Elmer's BLUE GEL glue to write a portion of Psalm 46 all over the front if the tee.
then i let it dry over night. the glue needs to dry completely!
once it was aaaaaaaall dry, i dyed it!
you mix 2 cups of hot, hot water,
with one packet of dye,
1 cup of salt, and
1 TBSP of liquid washing detergent.
mix it all together really well. (the salt doesn't have to dissolve, FYI)
then pour the mixture onto the shirt, which should be in a clean/washable container of some-sort. using GLOVES, mix it around with your hands so all of the shirt get some dye on it.
i ended up putting the dye and shirt into smaller container (like a 6 cup measuring bowl) so that the whole shirt could be submerged in the dye, and i didn't have to stir it as often.
let it sit for AT LEAST 30 min. mine sat for a little less than an hour.
then, wring it out,
wash it on delicate, cold/cold, and BY ITSELF,
and then wear it! :)
again, sorry for the stinky pictures....hopefully, when i wear it out somewhere, i get some better ones to show y'all.
this was SO easy to do. I hope somebody out there tries it!!
i hope everyone has a happy tuesday!
i love you all!
