I'm a canadian girl of dutch descent.  The dutch (around here at least) are known for being cheap. In true dutch spirit, I decided to make myself a KNVB (Koninklijke Nederlandse Voetbalbond) t-shirt so I could truly represent the Oranje as they attempt WORLD DOMINATION!! ahem. I mean a world cup win (finally).

Here it is!





click these ones for a close-up of the stencilling (sadly I couldn't manage to get a picture of all 4 letters while the shirt was on me)





I'm VERY happy with how they came out!

My father was also very happy with how mine came out, so he requested one for himself. I decided to do his more like the traditional logo, and then the bleaching didn't quite work the way I wanted it to (bled a lot under the stencil) so I went in with an orange fabric marker and I have to say it might be one of my favourite mistakes ever!



What do you think? Any suggestions for next time?

I love the look of that shirt, I think you did a good job with the bleach. 

Did you use freezer paper for a stencil?  Did you water down the bleach?

Yes, I did use freezer paper for the stencil. My printer hates freezer paper, so I have to print a picture out on normal paper, tape it to the freezer paper and then cut through both with an exacto knife, but its works fine.
As for the bleach, I'd say its a 75% bleach solution? I don't know really cuz I'm never exact about it.

This time I also let them sit out in the sunshine (it was almost 40 degrees celsisus) before I rinsed them out and I think that made them react more. They seemed to get better as they dried out after rinsing too!.
