Picture of DIY Spine T-Shirt

When it comes to my style, I have a bit of a multiple-personality disorder... In my closet. I love flowers, glitter, colors, fringe... and bones.  On one level, I think I'm attracted to the edginess of skulls and spines, but on another level, I think I just recognize the beauty of something so natural, functional, and vital. And, I love a trip to the Natural History Museum *almost* as much as I love a late-night forage on Fabric.com or a trip to my favorite shop. :) 

So when a blog friend of mine challenged me to make something from a plain white t-shirt... and then my roommate came home with a an awesome spine tank top, I knew I had to figure some project out involving a spine. 

Step 1: First Step: White Tee

The only things you really need for this project are a white t-shirt, some soft fabric paint or dye, some scissors, an empty bottle, and a paintbrush. (I used Tulip's soft paint. That stuff rocks.)

Instead of cutting it would be a cool idea to bleach the spine and ribs on!

Oh, I love it! Such a fun idea!

Thank you so much, Penolopy!
This looks great - it screams for some glued-on spikes along the spine for Halloween, but that's just me ;).
