(excuse my funny pose I was testing for a photoshoot in which a dachshund would be held)

That shirt! I made it Friday night and I love it. Its an american apparel shirt I got a grease stain on so I stole the bleach shirt idea from my ex-roommate Paul Nelson and used a method similar to the "punk rock tie-dying" found in this video http://www.youtube.com/v/6tl7EldysVE&hl=en

Do it! SO EASY! SO FUN!

I just bought some new american apparel shirts. One of them is the same color as your's! I wore it on saturday and got a stain on it too. Haha! If it doesn't come out, I'll do this.

Did you just use a bleach/water solution in a spray bottle like in the video?

Anyways, the shirt looks really good that way.

I didn't even make a solution, jsut took a spray pump and stuck it right into the bleach container! hahaha.  But yeah, pretty much just the same as the video.
