They were SURE missing those horses Wink

Narwhal would have been better, but horses are alright.

i love the effect you got using bleach and dyes! i wonder if i could achieve something similar using just a black tee and bleach? i've never dyed before, or bleached a whole garment before. i love what you did though!

That is a lot of work for a shirt, but OH MY, it's totally worth it. I'm tempted to try this, and maybe see if I can track down a whale and a bowl of petunias and see how many people 'fess up to being as dorktastic as me and get the reference... *skips away plotting*

I can't believe how much effort you went to in order to get just the right effect! Bleach, dye, bleach, dye, paint, applique. Is that about the right order of operations? LOL!

That's about right! I think the different dying and bleaching steps helped make it look like there was some depth on the shirt. And as we know space is pretty deep!  Cheesy I happened upon a free box of dyes that were headed to the trash at school so I had some kicking around to play with and try out.

Thanks for the love guys! I hope if you make your own Space *insert creature of choice here* shirt you post your project for us all to see and marvel!  Cheesy

I used the strongest heat n' bond on my horse fabric and simply cut the horses out and ironed them on. It's held on pretty good, but I still hand wash just to be on the safe side. (that and I don't want the dye to fade, I don't know if it would, but I play safe Smiley )
