Project Instructions

  • 1
    Prepare: Prewash t-shirt using detergent that doesn’t have fabric softener. Do not dry. Cover work surface with plastic tablecloth. Decide where you want the sunbursts to be on your t-shirt. Lay damp shirt flat on work surface then pull four inches of the shirt up into a tube shape and wrap a rubber band from kit at the four inch point. Wrap a second rubber band two inch below the tip of tube shape. Repeat along t-shirt until you have the desired number of sunbursts.

    Dye: Wearing plastic gloves from kit, fill Blue dye (or other desired color) bottle with water to fill line. Shake until dye is completely dissolved. Apply dye to t-shirt. Cover shirt with plastic tablecloth. Let set 6-8 hours. Note: Project time does not include this setting time.

    Finish: Rinse t-shirt in warm water until water runs clear. Remove rubber bands. Fill washer to large load setting with hottest water suitable for t-shirt and small amount of non-bleach laundry detergent. Wash and dry separately for the first few washes.
