This is my first attempt at bleach stenciling a t-shirt. I cut out a piece of plastic in the shape of a squid, spritzed bleach all around the area I wanted, then sewed on some buttons for a little something extra. I did two rounds of bleach and moved the stencil ever so slightly, so the tentacles kinda got more washed out than I wanted. Next time I will put on less bleach so it doesn't bleed under the stencil, but also refrain from moving the stencil til I'm done.

Ditto what yossarian wrote -- plus the eyes are PERfect and I really like the wrap around placement.

I like the fact that the tentacles got more bleached - makes it look like its under water! Good stuff!

I love how your squid shirt turned out. I just showed my 16 year old son. I've recently bought t-shirts from Michaels for him to experiment with the bleach idea. Maybe your idea will get his creative juices flowing!

This reminds me of the solar paper we used in grade school, where you put leaves on the paper, left it in the sun, and it would make a stencil over time... love the squid and eyes and definitely the placement of the image side/bottom vs center front.  also,  I didn't notice the tentacle-problem you mentioned.  Now I'm inspired to snag some of my housemate's bleach and give this a go!  Thanks!
