Bleach Tee

Now that Christmas is over, I can now share some of my DIY gifts! My youngest sister loves The Big Bang Theory. For one of her gifts I made a bleach tee with the "Soft Kitty" song lyrics.

First, I slipped a shirt I bought on clearance at the Gap on the middle shelf of my IKEA coffee table. I'm not using it, so I might as well do something with it.

I used a laundry pen to outline the lyrics to the song, as well as a kitten on the pocket.

I couldn't find a bleach pen anywhere! So I ended up using a q-tip to apply the bleach over the writing.

After I traced all of the writing, I let the bleach set for a while. The longer you let the bleach set, the lighter the writing will be.

Rinse out the bleach and let the shirt dry.

This was a super easy gift to create and give. It was scream worthy, therefore I success in my book!
