Thanks to all the wonderful instructions on this board I just finished our 7 shirts for our upcoming trip. They turned out better than I could have imagined! I have posted the pics in my photobucket acct http://s235.beta.photobucket.com/user/oesdog/media/SAM_0023.jpg.html http://s235.beta.photobucket.com/user/oesdog/media/SAM_0022.jpg.html http://s235.beta.photobucket.com/user/oesdog/media/SAM_0024.jpg.html I like a lot of white in them so did not get into all the folds on purpose. Think that next time I will do a few more rubber bands around the head. I only used 3-4. The colors are even brighter in person, I soaked in soda ash-a pkg from Hobby Lobby for 45 min and then used the Tulip brand kits. It is truly a messy project. I put down plastic table cloths and the dye still went through to my table. Oh well the price we pay for cute shirts!
