For the best results, use a prewashed and dried 100 percent cotton T-shirt. Gather up some rubber bands and prepare a shirt for the dye.

First, wet the shirt and lay it flat. With your fingers, scrunch and wrinkle the fabric, gathering it into a tight disk.

    Wrap several rubber bands around the disk. The tighter you bind it, the more white there will be in the final shirt.
