Pinterest Promise 2012 - Day 16
Here is the original PIN
Here is the pic
I like the design so I did a similar one with different colors. This shirt had some paint on the front and sleeve, but it is so soft and comfy. I did mine a little differently than the original pin.
Use a thick piece of cardboard between front and back or you will have the same design on back. draw design with bleach marker
***word of caution, shake bleach pen and then squirt some into sink or container. Liquid comes out first and can make a mess. make sure the gel is coming out before you mark your shirt. Let sit a few minutes rinse REALLY well then dry.
I pinned a throw away piece from another T-shirt under the bleach area and stitched around each leaf then like a reverse applique I cut away the insides.
***another word of caution, make sure you are only cutting the top layer and not both...or you will be sewing on MORE fabric.
