A birthday present for a friend.
So this was a second attempt with bleaching a shirt using a stencil...kinda an epic fail, but I like how it turned out really. Drew all the letters by hand and then cut out the stencil with an exacto knife. The tutorials and stuff said to use freezer paper. considering I have no idea what that is I thought contact paper would be a decent substitute. Probably not...that and I also didn't have any real bleach so I used clorox cleaner with bleach, makes the process go a little slower...oh well I still like it but I'm sure most people are just gonna say it looks a mess.

I actually did use wax paper on my first one, its in my projects, I did a fox on a tank-top and it turned out really awesome. Its one of my favies... I haven't really been able to find freezer paper, course I haven't really looked either.

Hey I've done that kind of shirt too! The how-to was on youtube, right? Yours turned out really awesome. The first one I did turned out horribly, I don't know what to do with that shirt now. I like the saying on yours Happy

I really like how this turned out. And I agree with Danielle A. Sometimes mistakes can be better!
