Thanks to everyone for all the tie dye advice. I ordered dye and stuff (including some Hanes Beefy T's) Dharma Trading. Their instructions assume you know enough to have your whole work area laid out before you start, which I didn't. But the worst thing that happened was the shirts got a half hour soda ash soak instead of just 5 minutes.

Anyhow I did the first three shirts over the weekend and they turned out pretty nicely, but they could have used more dye (i.e. less white showing through).
The small yellow/orange/red one is for my four year old nephew.

Just to use up the dye before it goes bad (one week, according to the catalog), I did another shirt last night.

I think this one is pretty much everything I was hoping for.

I couldn't (and probably wouldn't) have done it without you all.
