Crafting with my kids: Galaxy T-Shirts

send from InstaText

One of my dear friends from undergrad (we met 20 years ago!) was in town for a conference.  She stayed with us on Friday night and  wanted to do some crafting with the kids.   

We made these galaxy shirts.  The black t-shirts are all thrifted for less than 2 dollars {I resized ours with the serger}. We used this tutorial by Stars for Streetlight  (but a different fabric spray dye (sei tumble spray dye) , which really lightened up once heat set, so I would recommend spraying quite heavy if you are using sei).

This would be a fun project if you were having a crafty Star Wars party.

Lily plans to wear hers when she sings for  the Space Jam and Space Commander Chris Hadfield next week.  We found some silver leggings (nearly 100% cotton  yeah!)  at Target so it’s perfect. 



This is my shirt, as taken by Lily.
