this is a really easy method of decorating shirts to get a "tie-dye" effect that we used with the kids where i work, and of course i had to try it myself. I loved how quick it was...i just colored on the shirts with sharpies, then hung them up on the clothesline and sprayed them with a spray bottle of rubbing alcohol...i really loved the effects. (and it also makes a great kid's project)

the shirt with the orange peace sign i posted to show how quickly to spray the shirts, i sprayed half then had to refill my bottle so the other side didn't run as much...

sorry if my post is off, this is my first one!  Grin
