Crafting Part 2: Sharpie Tie-Dye

Tie-Dye with Markers     This weekend some friends and I got together (via long distance) to craft together.  We all met because of the Military and we are now all over the country, but we are not letting that keep us from doing things together.  So we set out to all tie-dye shirts this weekend!  Main post with all the other details HERE.     While a lot of us used a traditional method to create our shirts, we did have one family that was just a bit more creative.  They used Sharpie Permanent Continue reading
