Wide Ruled Tee Tutorial.

I heart permanent markers.
You will need:
white, already-washed T-Shirt
red permanent marker
blue permanent marker
cardboard about the size of the shirt body
piece of paper towel
straight-edge (I used a book)
1. Put the cardboard inside the T. Use the straight edge to draw a red line from the top to the bottom left.
2. Start drawing blue lines perpendicular to the red line. Leave a large white space at the top of the shirt, modeled after notebook paper. I made the lines about 2 inches apart.
3. Place the paper towel on the right side of the shirt and, using the straight-edge, draw a red line parallel to the first red line. This gives it the bled-through look.
4. Put it on your already-cool kid to enhance natural studliness.
