DIY: What to Do With the BF's Old Tees #1
I'm sure (for those of you who have SO's who are male) you've got a man's white underwear-style t-shirt bangin' around somewhere. Probably Hanes, no?
Hub has this ridiculous tendency to toss his clothes in the trash the minute they have the slightest stain, look a little dingy, exhibit some pilling, or stretch out of shape a little. Wasteful! Though I donate as much as I can of his used clothes to Goodwill/Salvation Army, his ol' white tees were begging to be given a new life.
And there's no end to the possibilities with a little fabric dye or paint on hand. Tie dye, potato printing, brushstrokes...it's all up to you. 80's-style, abstract tees are all over the place right now.
So why buy when you can DIY?
I used Tulip Brand Soft Fabric Paint (because it dries soft and flexible unlike a lot of other brands out there), but found that the bottle it comes in has too wide a mouth to distribute a thin scribble-like line (and fabric markers will skip over the fabric, not producing a continuous line, which is what I wanted). So I poured the paint into a Ziploc bag, snipped the tip off (I made the snip too tiny and the paint wouldn't come out at first - this stuff is surprisingly viscous).
