DIY Batiking Shirt

Okay, so this is another DIY project that isn't exactly a recipe.  But to my credit, I still had to follow step-by-step instructions, and I made it in my kitchen (and partially in the sink), so I think it could easily be included on Katherine in the Kitchen!

My TCU Batiking Shirt I made-
"We're gonna beat the hell outta you... and you, and you, and you and you and you!" has recently become my new obsession.  From recipes to DIY ideas to party planning to fashion to interior decorating, Pinterest has it all.  I have nine boards: In the Kitchen (shocker, I know), InStyle (fashion), Home Sweet Home (decorating), To have and to hold (wedding), Baby Love, Give me a patio & a marg (cocktails), Group Ideas, Helpful Hints, and A girl can dream (vacation destinations).  The idea is that users create a virtual pinboard of ideas and suggestions, all of which are then organized in topics and presented as photos.  Each photo is a link to the site from which it came.  Here's a link if you want to follow my pinboards.

Among the thousands of ideas I have gotten on Pinterest, I recently completed a t-shirt project, and I'm hooked.  I made a TCU shirt, and I'm really looking forward to making more!  I've even had some girls offer to pay me to make them shirts, but we'll see if that ever happens. 

Batiking is a method of sort-of reverse-dying something.  The shirts are super easy to make, and all it takes is the shirt, some glue, fabric dye, and salt!  Here you'll find a link to the website where I found how to make these shirts- so click the link, and try one for yoursel! (Or pay me, and I'll make you one, too!)
Thanks, Pinterest, and "happy pinning!"

Keep on craftin'!

    1. Thank you, Bunny! Even though it wasn't technically a recipe, it was still applicable for the recipe blog, I think! I need to make more of these, and I'll definitely post pics if I do- even if they're not quite recipes!
