When I first started on Pinterest, this was one of the first things I remember pinning. HOW CUTE ARE THESE BLEACH PEN TEESHIRTS? So this summer, while vacationing in Newport Beach, CA., I planned on making this for one of our daily crafts.
I picked up our teeshirts from Kohl’s ($7.99) and the bleach pens from Wal-Mart ($3.19) and we were ready!
On our laptop, we pulled up multiple pins on Pinterest of different designs that we could copy. Everyone decided on their design and we were off.
The first mistake that we made was that we didn’t shake the Bleach Pen before we used it. If you don’t do this, then the first squirts of bleach comes out real runny and bleeds into your teeshirt fabric. Darn Number One! Even though this was a mistake, the design that we made this mistake on turned out okay. It almost looked like it was intentional! Phew! Dodged a bullet on that one!
We totally free handed our designs by just looking at the samples on Pinterest and gingerly applied the bleach to our shirts. It only took 20-30 minutes before it looked ready (we peeked and looked on the inside of the shirt) and then we went to wash off the bleach.
When you wash the bleach off, it kinda comes off in blobs. I was the first one to wash my shirt off and I didn’t watch to make sure that the bleach blobs washed off quickly and some of the blobs settled in another area of my shirt and just for those few, quick seconds, it made little bleach dots on my shirt. Can you see them on the right? Darn Number Two!
After seeing my mistake, everyone else did a great job at washing their bleach off with no further casualties.
Look how cute my daughter’s sun came out!
This is a GREAT craft for teens and I think even younger children could do this pretty easily.
Thank you “Show Tell Share” for a REALLY FUN PIN!
This Pin Rocks!
