dyed in 1994
On the right, this 1994 or 1995 snapshot of my older son, Will, on a swing, shows the same shirt as is in the detail on the left--the only difference being that three or four years have elapsed, and the shirt's been worn hard by two little boys, first Will and then Peter. As you can see, Procion MX dye really, really lasts! (The detail shows the back of the shirt.)

I laid the pre-soaked shirt flat on a table whose top is composed of a 1/4 inch wire grid, then carefully applied the dyes in a sort of spiral design directly from the squirt bottles....a simple technique, and one of my favorites. Otherwise, I followed the usual technique.
