Easy Tie Dyed T-Shirts

My daughter loved this a lot more than my son did.  He didn't want to participate so Sis said we should make one for him.  It is a super easy way to create a dye tied shirt and cover a few stains too.  First we drew pictures with various colors of Sharpie markers.  Then we used droppers to drip drop rubbing alcohol all over the drawings.  The alcohol makes the colors spread and "bleed" all over the shirt.  T said he needed a cape to be a "hero" so I might make his t-shirt into a cape.  That will be another post though.  This could be done on any large piece of fabric.  Just for fun, it doesn't even have to be anything at all. Just a cool experience.
