Crafty Monday: it's to dye for!

Anyone who knows me is familiar with my t-shirt obsession. I have a closet full of black t-shirts and a growing number of funky art shirts from Teefury, a site known for selling one shirt a day and then never selling it again. An irresistible day on the site is the day they do the grab bag. With the grab bag you can purchase a shirt for only $5; the only catch is that while you can choose the size, you have no control over which shirt you get.

This is both good and bad. I've gotten shirts that I love, some shirts that I grew to love, and a few that I didn't like. The most often course of action with designs I didn't care for is to give them to a family member who loves the design. My most recent grab bag I got had a design that I loved, but the shirt color was white. Since I do not wear white I knew the only solution was to dye the shirt. Below are before, during, and after shots. You can also see my post on the teefury forum (which has been made into a sticky!! This is very exciting for me, lol).
