Recently on pinterest I saw an adorable shirt from an Etsy shop.
I knew it was something I could do, so I tried my hand at it.
I grabbed my supplies and headed outside so I didn’t inhale too many of the bleach fumes.
The shirt was an $8 one from Target. I cut the bird out with my Cricut machine. I bought one of those really thick, hard plastic spray bottles from the travel section in Target too. Afterwards, I was worried about the bleach eating the plastic, but two weeks later it’s still holding strong.
I laid the cutout on the shirt and started spraying away.
I kept going for quite awhile. Until it looked like this:
I probably could’ve stopped much sooner and got the look I was really looking for (more spotty like the first image), but I thought that the spots that you see in the image were going to give that to me. As soon as I got it to a point that I liked, I ran it inside and rinsed it well. I set it outside in the shade to dry it a bit before washing.
I washed it alone just to make sure no bleach transferred to any other clothes. And here’s what it looked like on:
It’s not perfect, but for my first try, I say I did pretty well! And for less than $10, I’d say it was worth the risk!
