Quick and simple tutorial on a Bleach Number Shirt today. I actually did this project back in November when my toddler turned 3, but am just now getting around to blogging about it - oops! Anyways, this is something anyone can do!
Cut a number out of contact paper or vinyl. I used my Silhouette/Cameo (can't remember which I was using at that time) to cut it, but a simple number is easily something you can trace and cut by hand. Then diluted a little bleach in water - maybe half and half? Then stick the stencil you made onto the shirt and use a foam brush to paint the bleach on. At first I didn't see an immediate change (maybe I used to much water??) so I set the shirt in the sun for awhile - maybe 30 minutes?? (this is why I should write tutorials right when I do things - so I can remember the steps better!)
You can see the defined number outline, the light purple, and you can also see the part where the bleach seeped under the contact paper - I kind of like that seep affect - it's the darker purple.
I whipped this up with things I had on hand the day before his birthday, because any little boy this cute needs a birthday shirt!!
You can do this!! Go give it a try!!
