Ooh I love making shirts like that!  I made a red one with dolphins, it reminds me of yours.  Good job.  Smiley

Horsey stencil?
WHERRRRRRRE would you find that?
Haha.
Great job on it.
My bleached creations always come out weird, because the fabric eats the bleach.

Haha, I didn't really figure that out until I tried bleaching jeans, and ker-plush theres holes.
Tiny, itty bitty holes that grew into large monster holes I DID NOT want.
But, I'm guessing I didnt rinse it in cld water afterwards?
I was only 12 when I did it.
Two years ago, I haven't gained much expierience, but whatever.

That top is hot.
I want it.
