If you are looking for almost instant gratification and a very quick last minute gift, here's another Pinterest inspired project I tackled last week. I had a favorite blue shirt that got a bleach stain on it. (That happens far too often around here!) Rather than relegate it to the painting shirt pile, I decided to try the bleach pen to make a design. I love, love, love how it turned out! You could buy some cheap t-shirts and make them look really special.
Here is my inspiration:
And here is my shirt. Using the top left shirt above as a my idea, I freehanded the design onto my shirt. I placed a piece of cardboard inside the shirt first.
Here's the spot where the original bleach stain was. Can you spot it?
It worked very quickly and as soon as the last bit that I drew bleached out, I quickly rinsed it in the sink, then put it in the washer immediately by itself. I wanted to make sure no further bleaching would take place, or that any runoff would not bleach other areas of the shirt. Now I like the shirt even more! Hmmm...wonder what I should splash bleach on next...might make cleaning toilets a whole new adventure!
