I attempted my first bleach pen t-shirt project over the weekend. It was super simple and I'm happy with how my son's shirt turned out. He wasn't all that thrilled about me trying to get a picture. Hopefully he smiles a little more on the 4th of July when he wears it!

This looks great! I love the way the lines stayed clear; I've never been able to get bleach pens to come out so clearly!

"I can make that!" has been the start of more misadventures than I can count Cheesy

I think by using the vinyl as a stencil and having it adhere to the shirt helped. I also tried to use my finger to "seal the edge" around the inside of the letters and shapes if that makes any sense. It was probably first timer's luck - which never usually happens to me!

That looks great! And I love the expression on your son's face.
