I inserted a piece of cardboard between the layers and grabbed the blue elmer's glue. This is a MUST!
Also here's a hint on finding the blue glue. I went to many stores trying to find this here in D.C. Office supplies, general stores, etc. I found it at Joann Fabrics. By accident after trying 5 stores prior!!!
Now I decided I wanted to draw peacock feathers on this shirt. Here is an easy way I figured out how to draw them. First, draw an upside down heart where you want the eye of the feather to be.
And then the forth. I had a lot of fun drawing these and excited at how simple it was to draw them!
Next time this is what I would do...
- draw my designs
- set up the water with salt, let cool
- add shirt
- dye for at least an hour
- let dry
- do initial rinse in cold water
- wash in hot water
I think I would get a darker dye. But it worked! This is so much fun!
