Something old, turned something new

I've been seeing so many batik style projects around the web lately that on the spur of the moment this morning I decided to give it a try. My (RED) shirt has it's share of paint stains so  I used that as my first test project. It was really easy to do and I think with more planning I would draw something up first and then sit and make things all days with my little Clorox bleach pen! I know you can also use stencils to create lovely stuff.

Make your own!
1. get a bleach pen
2. Draw something on a shirt, tea towel, table cloth, etc.
3. Let sit about 20 min
4. Run under cold water to remove bleach
5. Hang to dry.

Here's some pictures of what I did, the shirt was still wet when I left it so it looks a little darker then when I started.

Just draw right on top of the shirt. I put a magazine between the front and back
