Not so plain anymore…shirt updo

I decided to have a go at the freezer paper stenciling using bleach again.  It worked great this time!  The changes I did this time was that I used the bleach at nearly full strength allowing me to use less of it and preventing bleeding.  You can find the tips I used here (scroll down until you see a cute little cement truck on a red shirt and that’s where the pdf is) from Hoppo Bumpo.

I just found a graphic I liked on the internet and then cut it out on my Cricut into the freezer paper.  Then ironed one sheet of freezer paper on the inside of my shirt and then ironed the freezer paper with the design cut out onto the outside of the shirt.  Then spritzed the bleach and watched it work it’s magic!!! (make sure you cover up the areas that you don’t want bleached really well)

(I’m trying really hard to suck in the post baby bump)

Wow I love it. Makes me think I need to redo some of my t-shirts.

Love it! I love designs that wrap around the side.

I really like the design you chose, it turned out so pretty!

WOW! I LOVE THIS!! I just got a Cricut for Christmas, and was questioning whether I would use it all that often. If I can do stuff like this with it, I think it will be much more often than I thought!!
