    Prepare: Wash t-shirt and lay damp t-shirt out flat on covered work surface, smoothing out wrinkles. Fold t-shirt in half lengthwise. Lay half of paper plate along t-shirt fold, in desired position of bullseye. Trace around plate with washable marker. Pleat fabric along marker line, drawing pleats together so that the marker forms a straight line along the tops of your folds. Tie tightly along this line with rubber band. Secure additional rubber bands outside the first one until desired number of segments is achieved.
