I am sure everyone has seen galaxy goodies before.  There are tutorials and photos all ove the web and on Pinterest.  I never really gave them much thought intil My BFF went to Vegas and she made one.  Now she is not crafty at all and I figured if she could do it then so could I.  I also thought it would be fun for my kids to make their own too.  So we grabbed bleach, a spray bottle, and fabric paint and went to work.  The first thing you want to do is spray your shirts with bleach.  I used a water bottle with 1/2 bleach and 1/2 water.    after spraying let them dry out a bit then wash/ rinse and dry.  After they dried out we started with some watered down purple fabric paint, a foam brush, and added some color.  Then we used watered down blue then a bit of yellow for accents.  

Here is my daughters shirt


my sons


and mine


 I love that there is no right or wrong way to do this and how each is unique.

Landon has to redo his because I accidentally bought him a womens shirt!  It was in the boys section and I didn't look at it very closely... Oops!
