Bleach Stenciling for the Writer's Workshop Wednesday

It's Wednesday and that means that it's time for the Wednesday Writer's Workshop by Mama Kat This weeks options were:

1.) What's ailing you? Diagnose yourself with a syndrome. (inspired by Kimberly from Kamp KK
2. Share with us something you made by hand. (inspired by Texan Mama via email)
3. Fess up. Tell us what you found after spying on someone.(inspired by The Scattered Mind of a Tattooed Mini Van Mom)

4. "How are y'all doing it? This summer, I mean? I cannot remember ever being as busy as we've been over the past two months. Those of you who are blogging daily, being as witty and entertaining as ever...I beg of you...HOW?" (inspired by Lula of Lulaville)
5. What are you afraid of? (inspired by Life with Kaishon)

I went with Topic #2!!!!
I've been playing around with bleach stenciling on t-shirts the last few weeks.
If you have never bleach stenciled then you really should click on this link for my easy to follow instructions and join in on the fun.

I made the cutest girl robot shirt for one of my daughters to wear and of course was in a hurry and didn't photograph it. Same with the turtle one I made for a friend's baby. It's the same technique that I used to make the after prom shirts for my friend Gina and I, shown below. We also made the dragon!!!

I'm also working on a sweater that is pieces of 6 other sweaters all serged together. I'll post more about that later. For now I am having a blast playing with colored T-shirts, butcher paper and a spray bottle of bleach.

Gee, you mean you can intentionally bleach clothing? (wink, wink)

Very cool!

Those look really good!
I'd like to try that sometime.

What a cute idea. I used to bleach my pants in the 80's to give them a severe distressed look.

The stencils look good. My "stencils" tend to look a bit like tye dye rather than sharp edged.

But I really want the dragon - what more could one ask for?
