I was trying to think of a way to make a shirt with spider webs on it (more to come soon). This hit me like a duh...an oldie but a goodie - TIE DYE. So cheap and so easy. The only thing I actually bought for this was the powdered RIT which was about $1.75. Since I was dying black I recommend that no children be present, it was hard enough to keep it in one place without dying everything. The boys did help tie the elastics last night. We did them tight as possible and completely haphazzardly, no pattern. I followed the RIT instructions to dye the tees. The best part of course is cutting off the elastics.
