Keep seeing this done all over the web so I decided to try it for myself. It was easier than I thought. I made these rock t-shirts for my teenage son. They are his favorite bands. He nearly kissed me. I said nearly LOL. Kisses disappeared years ago, but his reaction was great. I bought Hanes t-shirts on sale at Walmart for $4.80 each, Reynolds Freezer Paper for $4.00 and had the bleach and spray bottle already in the house. Print out any design directly on to dull side of freezer paper, cut out design with exacto knife, iron on to t-shirt with shiny side down, spray with bleach (be careful to protect other areas from overspray), rinse in cold water and paper peels off easily, wash in machine with cold water and regular detergent. 2 more blanks to go..... Stone Temple Pilots and Metallica.

The turned out really nice.  Cant wait to see the Metallica one!  I love how black shirts/hoodies look when they are bleach stenciled.  Ive never tried it myself but, I received a sirius black bleach stenciled sweatshirt in a swap and i love it! 

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

Those look so extraordinarily fantastic!  Very clean edges... they look very professional.  I've attempted bleach/freezer paper stencils, but I think I always overspray because the bleach always bleeds.  Lucky son!  Smiley

I love it, I'll have to add that to my list of things to try before the next concert I go to. I like to have something unique to wear when I go, makes it more interesting standing in line, and between sets. You did a great job!

I can't get over how awesome these look. I'm in love with the Soundgarden one. So. freakin. cool.  Your son is lucky!

This is amazing! I can't believe how incredible these shirts turned out. How did you manage to get the Soundgarden shirt to fade out like that?

Willing to to a personal swap for a good sleep mask!!! Inquire within the PM box!
