Get your supplies together, I just got some cheap t-shirts from my local thrift shop.
Throw your shirts into the washer
Get two cups of hot water & sprinkle in the soda ash
Pour the soda ash mixture to a large bucket that's filled with two gallons of warm water
Mix your dye as directed
Lay your shirt out flat
For the spiral pattern you are going to twist the shirt around, starting at the center until you get to the end and just put rubber bands around.
For the scrunch design you simply randomly scrunch the shirt and add some rubber bands.
For the bullseye pattern just lift the shirt from the center and add rubber bands about an inch to an inch & a half apart, depending on how large you want your sections.
Soak in soda ash mixture for at.east 20 minutes
Add your dye as desired
Place your shirts into plastic bags and let sit for 12-24 hours.
