This shirt was my first attempt for both bleaching a pattern and embroidery.  I used a tide bleach pen, which I don't suggest using.  It's diluted so it takes forever and it bleeds like crazy.  I just freehand drew it.  Then after deciding I didn't like the bleach pattern, I decided to try my hand at embroidering it, which is the first time I had tried it.  I like it a lot more now! It looks really cute and I really like the fall colored leaves because they stand out more than green leaves would.

Thats cool.  It makes it look like you have a patch or something on the shirt, and it really makes the design pop Smiley

I love this! I have some very blah t-shirts that I've embroidered, hoping it would make them wow! shirts. So far they are just blah-embroidered. I'm going to give bleaching a try now...  Grin
