 My four-year-old and I did some tie-dye shirts for summer and I've discovered tie-dye isn't as straight forward as I expected. So after that, I went back and did a couple shirts on my own for him so he might have something a little more presentable to wear.   Anyway, he is a fan of Big Hero 6 and his favorite character is Baymax so I thought a Baymax tie dye would be fun.   First I freezer paper stenciled Baymax onto a white T-shirt with Tulip Cool Color Block,  which was supposed to act like a dye resist.   It really didn't work very well  as you can see in the picture below. Then I tie-dyed a swirl of colors that I thought my son would like .   This is how it turned out:



 Luckily, I had kept the template for Baymax so I reapplied the freezer paper stencil and used the bleach method this time.   Then I added the eyes with a black fabric pen.  Which resulted in this:



The bleach bled a little but he loves it.  Here is the Captain America shield shirt I also did for him, using a bleach freezer paper stencil for the star in the middle (also a Cool Color Block fail):

I am collecting cotton Hawaiian fabric scraps for a quilt if you wanted to send any my way!

Lovely and well done on sorting out your mistakes so they look okay.  It helps the rest of us to learn too.

Awesome!! Love Baymax! My son would flip for that shirt.

Resists can be super tricky, glad you were able to save the shirt cause it's awesome!
