Tie-Dye Paw-er and the Quickie Muscle Tee!

Sebastian has been wanting a tie-dye tee F-O-R-E-V-E-R!!!
This project is super easy AND eco-friendly.



Instructions

My first step was making the tee.  I call it the Quickie Muscle Tee because it's so easy and fast!  All you need is an old shirt.  Since Sebastian is a small dog, the sleeve of my brother's XL shirt fit him perfectly!!  (If your dog is large, you can keep the shirt as is and just bring the sleeve holes in closer at the bottom) 



I cut the sleeve off, then cut the collar of the shirt off to use for the new collar by attaching it to the sleeve.  Here it is inside out with the bottom side up.  Trace a circular object for the arm holes and then cut them out (so simple!!).  I used a zig zag stitch to secure the arm holes.



Here's the completed Quickie Muscle Tee (you can add sleeves if you'd like with the remaining fabric from the original shirt)


The Tie-Dye Paw-er look was achieved with this really cool tie-dye kit by Tulip.  It comes with great instructions.  Plus you can never go wrong with tie-dye!!


Here I am applying the dye in my bathtub.  I used the "bullseye" technique from the kit instructions.


After the dye is soaked in, wrap up the shirt in plastic wrap, let it sit for 8 hours, and then wash it.  That's it!!  Time to get the camera out and capture your masterpiece!


So easy and I have enough dye left over to make more.  Here is a look at the bottom of the tee.


Cheers to upcycled eco-friendly styles for dogs!!
