This is an easy way to customize a child's T shirt without needing any special talent!
The shirts I use are 100% cotton that have been pre washed.
What you need:
A cotton T shirt
Cold water dye
Iron on transfers
Iron on sparkles/diamonds/etc
What you do:
Make sure the T shirt is wet - squeeze out extra water.
Use the elastic bads to tie up the wet t shirt randomly - for example lots of ties on the top and bottom and none in the middle or vice versa.
Dye as per instructions on the dye you bought - but leave for half the time so that the colour will look 'faded"
Rinse and dry.
Iron on the transfer and the sparkles...
You now have a 'vintage' T shirt!!
If you dont have dye, you can actually use TEA - brew some VERY strong tea and use instead of the dye.
You will get a faded brownish colour that really looks unique!
