Transform your boring, old shirts into unique fashions with tie-dye paint and simple cutting & sewing techniques. Bring a shirt that you’d like to customize or grab one of ours to experiment with. Is your shirt too big, too small, or just too plain? There’s a project to make it work for you!

Cotton shirts will work best with tie-dye.
