Here's a tee I made for my sister.

The bleach stencil didn't quite work as I wanted.  But it turned out okay.  I did 2 different stencils and bleached them different amounts.





This is the shirt on me, doesn't fit because my sister is considerably larger than I am!

Here's a better view of the shirt.  The band at the bottom kind of puckers because I used a stretch stitch and haven't quite mastered it yet!



Thanks for looking. C & C welcome

I actually REALLY like your bleach stencil!  The one time I tried bleaching it turned out... not quite as expected... I only wear that shirt for PJs!  But yours looks good!

It looks nice. Stenciling can be tricky, trust me, I still haven't quite gotten it myself.

As for the puckering, try not to stretch the fabric as you sew. It takes getting used to, but it gets real easy real quick!

Keep up the great work!
