Picture of Captain America Tie Dye Avengers Shirt
Everyone around the office has been talking about Marvel's The Avengers this week and we just knew that there had to be a fun craft in there for us to in honor of the movie! We put our thinking caps on and thought that a tie dye shirt in Captain America style was in order! This project was designed by in-house designer Lauri Eaton and she did an amazing job! We think Captain America fans out there would want to get this tie dye look for themselves! In fact, a lot of guys in the office wanted one after seeing what we made! Here's how you make one for yourself!

I go away to camp every summer, and twice a month we have "Tie-Dye Friday". I made four of these for myself and my three friends and we wore them to dinner on the 4th of July! We looked AWESOME!!! Thanks for the great idea! :D

Being a huge Marvel nerd, I ADORE this project, but how do you keep all the colors so crisp? Even with the zip ties, my outer circle is always almost completely purple from the blue and red bleeding together.

Make sure to pull the zip ties REALLY tight. This may mean you need to get some pliers out to tighten. That's what Lauri, our designer did. Sorry for any confusion. I'll make sure that gets updated in the Instructable!
