    Cover your work surface with newspaper. Lay your clean, dry shirt flat on the newspaper. Carefully pinch the center of your t-shirt and start twisting it.

    Continue twisting the t-shirt into a tight spiral like the one shown above. If you want, you can loosely wrap a rubber band around your spiral to hold it in place, but this is optional. If you do wrap it, make sure it isn't too tight.

    I started out by spraying blue Simply Spray dye in the center of the shirt. After seeing the finished shirt, I wish I would have made sure the blue saturated the shirt a little more. I then sprayed red "stripes" on the shirt. As with the blue, I wish I had been more generous with the red, but I still like it.

    Let the shirt sit until it is dry enough to handle. Carefully flip your shirt over, making sure it stays in the spiral. Spray the back of the shirt the same way you did the front....MORE Let the shirt sit until it is dry enough to handle and then hang it up to set and dry for about 24 hours.
