DIY : Aztec t-shirt part two

I absolutely love Aztec prints at the moment :) I have already made one Aztec t-shirt so I thought I'd attempt another Aztec t-shirt :)

All you need
-one plain t-shirt
-White fabric paint
-Scissors
-Masking Tape
-Sponge

Place the t-shirt over a piece of wood or cardboard. This is so you have a flat surface to work on. Also this will stop the paint from imprinting on the other side if the t-shirt. Now add your masking tape to the t-shirt. To make these shapes.

Make sure the masking tape is securly on the t-shirt so you get a perfect shape.
Use a sponge to add the paint to the t-shirt.

When it is all covered. Dry for about 10 minutes and reapply the paint to get a thicker colour. Once you have done that let it dry for about 20-30 minutes so it's completely dry.

This will be your finished result :) next step the fringing :)

Add masking tape to the bottom of the t-shirt you can choose how high or low you want the fringing.

Cut small pieces to get a fringed effect. Cut up towards the masking tape.

Once you have cut the fringing into the t-shirt. Tie a knot in each one. This is so the fringing doesn't rip any more.
