Peter Capaldi Galaxy TARDIS Shirt--12th Day of Doctor Who!

On the 12th Day of Doctor Who, my true love gave to me...
Peter Capaldi!
What do you think...do you love Capaldi as the Doctor?
I'm warming up to him...but it wasn't
love at first sight like it was with David Tennant.
My geek-love gave to me...
The Entire GALAXY!!!
 On episode 5, Time Heist there is some argument
 about why the Doctor is the one in charge...

 "Still don’t understand why you’re in charge"

Doctor:  "Basically, it’s the eyebrows"
I used freezer paper and cut big blocky letters out with my silhouette machine.
They were simple enough they could be cut by hand.
I didn't even cut the centers of the letters.
 Just line them up on the black shirt and iron the
 shiny side of the freezer paper onto the shirt.
 Add a TARDIS and it's ready to go!
 I laid it out on the patio.
Sprayed with bleach (half bleach half water)
Wait just about 5-10 minutes.
Then spray again if there are any places that need more.
It will turn very coral.
 Peel off the freezer paper...careful not to bump any other part of the shirt!
 Looks awesome!
 Then rinse the shirt in hot water and ring it out.
Lay it back down on the cement and use one step tie dye dyes to add colors,
swirls, nebulas, star trails and other galactic wonders...
(need more details here...check out this Galaxy Dress for more instructions)
 Add more colors until satisfied...then wrap it in
 plastic and let it sit for 6 hours or so.
 Remove from plastic and rinse in the sink until the water runs clear.
Then wash in a normal cycle!
Some of the color will fade...but it's awesome!
 Love the look of mist and nebulas!
That's the 12 days of Doctor Who Christmas Countdown!
Pop in tomorrow for a recap as well as a
so you can surprise someone this Christmas too!
