Finally I have my own blog post titled that. 😉 Pinterest has so many creative ideas for DIY projects. This week I was so excited to actually try one!
This is the post that gave the instructions I followed. Even though it was pretty straight forward, I was so nervous about taking bleach to a shirt and I welcomed the instructions.
I started with just a plain black t shirt. Sorry for the poor picture quality.
The post recommended putting wax paper between the shirt layers to prevent
the bleach from designing the back of the shirt as well. I didn’t have
wax paper, but I had a small box with drawing supplies in it.
I just stuck it in between the layers…
…and bleached on a design using a Clorox bleach pen…
…and let it sit.
The post said to rinse the excess bleach off using warm, soapy water, but I wasn’t sure how to do that without the bleach spreading to the rest of the shirt. I ended up with quite large bleach blots on my design. Finally, I decided to go for it and thankfully the bleach blots didn’t spread at all. They rinsed right out!
And here is the finished product!
I am so pleased with how it turned out! In fact, I’m already trying to find a time to go to Goodwill and buy more plain t shirts so I can try out other designs. I have several ideas in my head. 🙂
All in all, it was a very fun and very simple project that turned a plain T into a cuter alternative!
