**Tie Dye Mickey ears shirts directions**NEW NEW PICS LAST PAGE**
 
Just wanted to share how I made our shirts.

First we got the plain white 100% cotton shirt.

Mark the mickey shape ears into the shirt with a washable pen.




Bast and pull the string.

Now let it soak in the ash water for about 30-40 min...

Put the rubber bands around the ears.

Then you twist the shirt

Now the rest of the rubber bands around the shirt, like a pizza.







I put a piece of plastic under the mickey ears to keep the ink to leak to rest of the shirt.

Now color the ears

Then the rest of the shirt

Then put the whole thing in a plastic bag




Leave them overnight or 24 hours.

And that's it! then you wash them in washing machine, put them in the dryer low heat or hang to dry.

I second that. I tried, but it was an epic fail. I tie dyed my skin better than the shirt!
