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.

  3. […] Freezer Paper Bleach T-Shirt- Did you know you can use freezer paper as an iron-on for making t-shirts? It’s simple! Just trace your design onto freezer paper, cut it out and iron onto a cotton t-shirt. Once the design is in place, it’s time to decorate! Fill a squeeze bottle with bleach and spray your shirt, fading the color around the design in a cool pattern. Once your bleach has dried, remove the paper and decorate with puff paint, fabric markers or even some bling! You can also create bleach designs using contact paper. […]
