Can be made out of 6 t-shirts new or used. You cut stipes of 2 inches from the shirts. you cut the t-shirt off 2 inches below the underarms. You can use fabric paint, rubber stamps or just draw your design on the different color stips with fabris makers. I am in the process of making a St. Patricks Day one for a grandchild. After you have the strips ready yousew them onto the dress top.
