I finaally tried this, and didnt do to bad. Hard to believe but the first shirt i did was the best one. I did two kiddie ones and two adullt. The adult ones didnt come out to bad. I used to many rubber bands i think becuase i got a thick white line arounf only one side of the mickey head? Going to try again with halloween colors, we are going in oct. I attempted to do two heads on the tank dress i found for my lil one. Wish me luck..lol does anyone know what clor yellow pixiedust did for the classic mickey head shirt on pg 100? I just love that color combo?

How do you get the white halo around the ears? I did this twice but couldn't get the halo. The ears were there but no outline.

The third time I cheated and used the resist. That worked, so I'm happy with the results. I think we're going to wear these with silly hats when we go to MNSSHP.

best way to get white outline around the ears is to make sure you use enough rubber bands. i always uses 3 or 4 of them.

Use a bleach pin to outline if your rubber bands didn't work.

Ive made about 10 shirts and FINALLY have gotten some really good ones . I have put the rubber bands on really tight and been getting the white line around the head but how is everyone getting the head to stay one color? I ususally die the head first then wrap in plastic and die the top of the shirt and then the back but for some reason the die from the back seems to seem into the head?? How does everyone else do it?

So, is there a place in this thread where we learn how to outline mickey with that nice thin white line? I can't seem to find that part! Your shirts are awesome!

Smile Tie dye mickey shirts

How do you make these tie dye shirts (page 129 by PirateFish989)? I like how they are only one color, not the multi-colored, spiral ones??

The outline can be very hit or miss. Most people choose to add several rubber bands to guarantee the outline, and don't mind it thick. If you want one that's thin, your best bet would be to dye normally then trace around the Mickey head with a bleach pen (must be bleach, stain pens won't work). Should you choose this route, make sure you put something in between the layers of the shirt so you don't bleed through.

As for those solid color shirts, they're done as bulls eyes. In non Mickey head ones, you pick up the fabric (both layers) from wherever you want the middle of the bulls eye to be, and lift straight up. The easiest way I can think of to describe it is imagine taking a fabric napkin that's laid flat out, pinching it in the middle and picking it straight up, then pulling it through pulling it through your hand with your first finger and thumb together, like you were smoothing it into a tube. You'd band down the "tube". I'm sure you could google or youtube it and see what I mean. Then you just put on the dye. The white circles are from the rubber bands.

So guys, just an FYI, PixieDust32 who has been the main contributor to this thread has not made a post on the boards at all since June 18th of this year. I don't know if she still monitors this thread or responds to PMs but I think all signs are pointing to no.
