Bleach Pen T-shirts
an old magazine
1. I use Target's mossimo Tee's that are (I think) 95% cotton/5% spandex. Place one or two magazines inside the shirt directly under where you will be making your image. Pick an image that is not toodetails (the bleach does bleed a little.)Transfer your design using a pencil especially made for this (if you need to.) You can usually find them anywhere they sell sewing supplies. I was inspired by this image posted by Abby.
2. Draw your image onto the tee using the fine tip side of the bleach pen. Be careful of:
your own dang hand!
3. With some material the tee begins to lighten immediately, others you may have to wait up to 30 minutes. After the image has appeared CAREFULLY and QUICKLY rinse the bleach from the tee in the sink with cold water. I have had problems with bleach transfering to other parts of the shirt. After it is rinsed throw it in the washer to wash and then the dryer to dry (ha ha)
4. Wear it proudly!
