Learn how to make these Sharpie Tie Dye shirts with Annelise and Julia. You can use this technique on pillow covers, canvas bags, canvas shoes, etc. Happy Crafting!

You will need:

A white t-shirt

Rubbing alcohol

An eyedropper (can also use a spray bottle)

Permanent markers

Cookie sheet or cardboard to place between the layers of the shirt

Remember your color combinations when applying the marker: Purple + yellow or green = brown; blue + orange = brown; green + red = brown. Use colors beside each other that are complimentary for the best results: blue + green, yellow + orange, etc. And lastly, green bleeds to yellow and red bleeds to pink.
