Saturday Style Peek- Galaxy Shirt DIY

I leave Southern Utah (For two weeks, then I come back for two weeks, then I'm done. But I'm moving out of my apartment in a couple of days. I know, confusing.) in just a few days. So Sarah, Kelsey and I had to get together one more time!

Sarah and I had been wanting to make galaxy shirts for a while, so we decided that's what we would do! I needed a good craft night. She had also been dying to try the saltine treats recipe I posted a while ago. So, I made those while she tested out the paints, then we all ate and created.

Pretty sure they all turned out amazing. I can't wait to wash and wear mine!

Sarah was the brains behind this operation. First, we twisted the shirt in one area so it looked like a small spiral. Next, we lightly sprayed bleach on to the shirt. Then, we used different colored fabric paints (neon green, light blue, light and dark purple, and white) to create our galaxy's. :) We used a small paint brush and flicked the white on, a sponge, and saran wrap to apply the other colors in whatever pattern we wanted.

I wish I had gotten a better picture. You can hardly see Sarah's. But trust me, it's amazing.

The first time I attempted the galaxy shirt, it was a total fail. So I am so happy it worked out this time!!

I don't know what I am going to do with out these girls around. Luckily, we're all from the same town in Northern Utah, so I'm sure I'll still get to see them.

These are so cute...and it's exciting they come from the same place. If I could take all of my college friends with me to Georgia? I would definitely do it.

oooOOOooo so pretty! They turned out great you guys! They all look super realistic too. This is the kind of thing I would fail monstrously at and so I won't even try it. But that's ok because I don't need anymore t-shirts anyway ; ] And I can just marvel at the beauty of the ones you guys created instead : ]


P.S.--I totally went through and read everyone's responses to the last 7 Questions. I found it really interesting that I think I was the only one would would maybe choose one legendary act of service as opposed to smaller acts every day. A lot of people seemed to associate it with wanting recognition for what you do and that's why they chose the smaller acts instead. I actually hadn't thought of it that way, and instead just thought about the people I could hypothetically save (giving my life to save 100s) and saving their families from that pain, and so on. If you're dead, then you don't really get any recognition right?...Anyway! I am just babbling here and thinking out loud haha. I did love reading everyone's answers and especially what they chose for the happiness one : ]
