So I have seen these on Pinterest and thought I would give it a shot. Well mine was not the best but can see how with the right design these could be super cool. I was going to make it for my son’s birthday party but went and bought one instead. We are using it as a pajama shirt though.
Draw or place contract paper template design on shirt.
Put something in between layers I used poster board so it would not go through to the other side.
Trace or fill in with a bleach pen
wait 15 min then rinse off and put in wash alone
What I did wrong!
- I didn’t think about that gray would turn pink. (this was the biggest problem my son had with the shirt)
- The glasses were not crisp and clean. I don’t know if it was that the contact paper was not down good enough.
- I should have kept it simple with circles for eyes.
- I think that I should have filled in the face and left the eyes and mouth without the bleach.
If done right I think this is a great project and fun! I think I may try it again soon and will update photos with more of a line design like a henna tattoo looking shirt for my daughter.
