Hi!
this is my first post here Cheesy

I had this shirt that was picked up at the thrift store, it didn't really
fit..

So I took bleach to it! Then I cut the sleeves, and the neckline. And added some stitching details!







Then I had this black shirt, it was kind of faded, I never wore it



So I used a bleach pen to draw a smiley face on it.



Done

Great shirts!  With all the detail on it, your pink one is a work of art!

Those are really cute! It's weird that the black one turned orange after you used the bleach pen on it. The pink one is very cute!

I love the black one, and the burnt orange that it turned. Great for the fall.

That's a great indoor rainy day project! Find a plain old t-shirt and the rest is a piece of cake! (mmm cake!) I love the smiley face one Smiley

It's bleach in a more concentrated form, mainly to help with spot bleaching.
It looks like this:

Even the pen gives off some odor. I would recommend doing this outside, thats what I did.

Thanks to everyone for all the great comments!!! Smiley
