Very cool tops and patchy thing.

Phantom chinchillas are the worst!  But not as bad as the real ones, who just recently chewed a hole in my favortie shirt!  Maybe i will use your patch idea to fix it

I like wearing black sometimes. But it seems like faded black only works best for me...It collects a lot less kitty hair.
Will these bleaching techniques work for the overall fading of a black t-shirt? Or do you guys have some other insight to this question?

Thanks!!

clorox bleach pens = uber awesome!!!!

i bought some and imidiantly went crazy on my wardrobe. i did four things.

a black tanktop that says "i (heart) freud"
"i (heart) rozz" down the sleeve of my jacket (it turned out red, it looks really cool
"einsturzende neubauten" and their logo on a black tote bag. (one i got free from visa but i turned it inside out so the label didnt show)
and i made this REALLY cool stencil of a girl witha a gas mask and i threw it away after i used it only to find that the shirt i bleached it onto doesnt fit me Sad

so yeah...in conclusion...bleach pen=really awesome.

There's a thread around for making tshirts look vintage/fading... Some suggestions were putting some rock salt in the washing machine and washing the shirt with it in there.

There was an article in YM that someone posted on the thread...
"FOR MILD FADE:
1. soak shirt in 8 cups water, 1 1/2 cups salt for three days.
2. wring out and rub with sandpaper.
3. hang to dry in sun.
4. wash and dry normally.
FOR EXTREME FADE: (must be 50/50 cotton/polyester blend)
1. soak shirt in 6 cups water, 2 cups bleach, 1/2 cup salt for two days.
2. wash and dry."

Hope that helps.

No problemo. I just did a search on here for "making a shirt look vintage" and things like that. There's actually a multi-page thread about it.
