Did you know you can make designs on fabric with a Bleach Pen?
I saw someone post a t-shirt on Pinterest and said it was made with a Bleach Pen. I thought, why haven’t I ever thought of that?! I have one so, of course, I had to try it.
I’ll be honest, it didn’t turn out the way I thought it would, but I actually like the bleeded effect I got. It kind of it reminds me of tie-die. If you go into the craft knowing that it’s going to bleed, you can make some neat shirts!
Things You Will Need
*You can find freezer paper at the grocery store in the aisle with the foil.
Make a design you like or download mine.
Print the design on the freezer paper (not on the side with the wax) and cut it out with an X-acto knife. This is the hardest part, so take your time with it.
Iron the freezer paper onto your shirt, wax side down.
The wax, when heated, adheres to the fabric and peels off easily. No clean up necessary.
Place your notebook inside of the shirt to keep the bleach from soaking through to the other side.
Beach it. (I might have gone overboard.)
Take your shirt to the sink, carefully peel off the Freezer Paper and wash the shirt.
Let it dry.
When you’re finished, you should have something like the above.
Let me know what you think! Do you like the bleeded effect or would you prefer a design that looks clean with straight lines?
