What do you mean you used freezer paper stencils? I'm sure this is explained somewhere, but I figured I'd just ask. I want to use this idea (bleaching clothes) for part of my Halloween costume!

There's a good bleaching with Soft Scrub explanation at http://calamitykim.typepad.com/calamity_kim/2008/10/soft-scrub-bleach-discharge-on-velvet-tutorial.html

You'll find lots of info on bleaching and freezer paper stencils if you just look under the Stenciling: Discussion and Questions here on Craftster.

Ooh, duh- I didn't look under discussion and questions! (I have a cold- which basically means my brain is not working! Bah, stupid illnesses!) Thank you! Cheesy

btw, I should have told you I think your shirts are awesome. I'll probably be using this technique to spruce up some of my boring-as-heck t-shirts, too!

These are very cute. Plus, I understand what you mean about making projects that you'll actually wear. I like the look of more costume-y type clothes, but I know that there is a time and a place for them and taking a trip to the mall or drug store isn't one of them. Smiley
