Easy Patriotic Bleach Tee

Stencil T-shirts with Bleach

I have wanted to try stenciling on old T-shirts with bleach for awhile now.  It is so simple, and quick.  All I did was cut stars and words from contact paper using my Sizzix.  I placed them on the shirts where I wanted, made sure they were adhered well, put a trash bag inside the t-shirt to protect the back from bleach, and sprayed with a spray mister filled with bleach.  The effect was obvious in 1-2 minutes.

Make sure you do this in a well ventilated area, preferably outside, and wear gloves and protective eye wear.

great idea about the spray bottle… I just want to do this to get an ombre effect without using Rit Dye, a bucket and water. :)

Do you think I could get a similar effect by using stickers? I don’t have a Sizzix.
