    Bast and pull the string.

    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.

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