This is really cool! I like how you used the nail polish too instead of fabric paint Happy

Hennie,
make sure to leave the bleach for a longer time to make sure it lightens. Depending on the material of your fabric it can take longer or faster. The longer you leave the lighter that orange shade will get. Happy Hope that helps.

I washed it a couple times already and they just fade a bit but stayed put altogether. Happy

Awesome idea - nail varnishes have just the right consistency but how have they fared with washing on yours? Do they stay on okay?

Hi Ebony! Thank you so much! I have thought about that too but I figured I'll try on leggings or something so that it would keep things subtle on the tops as I have too many knots already. Happy Show me how yours turned out please.

TC! xox
