For each shirt:
Prepare the dye bath, following the package instructions. Begin with a washed and wet T-shirt.
For the navy T-shirt:
- Wrap rubber bands around the hem and each cuff. Create a large target in the center by gathering the fabric into a cone shape and adding rubber bands an inch apart around the cone. Soak in the navy dye bath for 20 minutes. Remove the rubber bands and rinse the shirt until the water runs clear. Dry in the dryer.
- Following manufacturer's instructions, screen-print the peace sign onto scrap fabric by positioning the screen on the scrap fabric. Squirt a 1/2 inch wide line of Oasis paint across the top of the screen. Drag the paint over the screen using a squeegee. Lift the screen and rinse it. Allow the paint to dry. Position the peace sign inside the T-shirt, and sew around the design. Cut away the front of the T-shirt to reveal the design underneath.
- Repeat the screen-printing process with the OMG Orange paint and the star screen. Iron fusible webbing to the back of the screened star, cut around the design, peel the paper backing, adhere to the T-shirt using an iron, and sew around the edge of the star using a straight stitch.
