tee party

I want to have some crafty time with my nieces
I got some ideas for embellishing some summer tees for fun
this one has stars you cut out of contact paper and attach
then you spray the shirt with a bleach and water mixture
let it in the sun to bleach
rinse off in water then soak a little in vinegar to stop the bleaching.
how cute is that?

this one you cut slits horizontally 
evenly spaced in back about half inch to inch apart
then you take the top band of fabric made by the slit
and bring it over and under the next one and repeat
all the way down till the bottom is reached. then you attach 
the strip to the bottom by sewing to hold it in place

this one is done with a bleach pen. 
great for people with pretty penmanship
vinegar set like the first one
after rinsing off

and this one uses up tons of pony beads
for the kiddos to do
cut off hem of sleves and bottom
then cut slits up to where you mark the shirt
I am thinking mark it with an old used
bar of soap
the edges are sharp and you can see the mark
then it washes off
pull on the tee pieces and tie on the beads
easy peasy
and fun ideas for the kiddos  out of school!

Fun activities - I can remember doing the pony bead Ts with my daughter and friends for a birthday activity years ago. They loved it. said...

Those are looking like fun! I know a birthday party which is coming up and it may be a cool one of a kind gift.
