Adventures in Bleach Pen Clothing

5 years ago



Last night I began an experiment with a Clorox Bleach Pen.  I had no idea such a thing even existed until yesterday.  I was inspired by a post I saw on Show Tell Share. What you are about to see here is the result of about a day's worth of trial and error... and just a little bit of stubbornness on my part.

My first attempt involved a very cheap t-shirt that I made into a dress.  It did not work out so well.  The bleach that is.  The dress itself was cute (I thought).  But... maybe I should have tried the bleaching FIRST before beginning a sewing project.  Oh well, lesson learned. 

I do think that the cheap-ness of the shirt may have had something to do with my failure.  However, my biggest mistake was that I left the bleach on WAAAAY too long.
