  3. Mix a 1:3 ratio of Fabric Creations to water in your squeeze bottle and shake until well mixed.
  4. Squeeze your Neo Mint mixture on every other triangle section. Now squeeze your Carnation mixture on the remaining white spaces. Flip your shirt over and repeat this process on the backside.
  5. Remove the rubber bands from your shirt and lay it flat to dry. Once your shirt is dry, heat set the shirt with an iron or put it in the dryer with dry heat.
