My spring break project — bleaching t-shirts. It is fairly simple and all you need is a bleach pen and a plain t-shirt!

Materials:
Bleach pen
Plain T-shirt
Instructions:
 
Step 1: Sketch out your design with erasable marker. I skipped this step because the only erasable marker I had was blue.


Step 2: Draw with bleach pen. I picked a peacock feather design.

Step 3:
Let it dry. If you wash it too early, it will be orange or yellow, so be patient and let it sit for a good while. On the other hand, if you want it to be orange or yellow, don't let it sit for too long. 


Step 4: Wash. I had a lot of color wash out of mine, so I wouldn't recommend putting your bleached shirt in the washer. I just washed it by hand. Make sure you thoroughly wash it too.

Step 5: Let it dry. Hang it up somewhere.

Step 6: There is no step 6.
