One of my favorite things to do with dyeing is to upcycle clothes that are stained or a little worn. Dyeing them brings new life and makes them look new. I did a semi circle pattern for this one and it turned out really great.
I started by folding it in half and then folding very narrow triangle folds at the side that got bigger as they went out to the sides of the shirt. I was going for a sunburst pattern. The cool thing about this pattern is that when it's worn on the body, it looks like a circle on the side- this video shows it very well.
