About one year ago, I purchased a bleach pen with the idea that I could one day use it to make a drawing on a t-shirt. I had this new fun kiddo tee in mind for quite some time, so I finally decided to give it a try! I think this could work great as a little weekend project! ;)
Here are the supplies that you'll need: 1. A bleach pen (I used a Clorox one); 2. THIS* "Happy Apple" printable; 3. A cardboard; 4. A pencil (it's easier to draw on the tee with a softer one like 5B, 7B); 5. Scissors; 6. A blank (color) tee.
*Free for personal use only.
Step 1: After printing the apple drawing, cut around the edges and then start tracing the outline with a pencil.
Stept 2: Insert the cardboard inside the tee, behind your drawing; this will protect the back of the tee. Follow the directions stated on your pen package. For extra protection, use rubber gloves and keep your kiddo away while using the bleach pen. :)
Step 3: Once you have finished, let the drawing dry for 15-20 min (or more, depending on the fabric and bleach pen).
Step 4: Rinse the tee thoroughly in cold water and let it dry.
Once the tee is dry, it should be ready to go!
Hope you'll enjoy this! My little one really likes his tee because he loves to say "Apple!!" I had a really hard time though getting him to cooperate with the pictures since he was in his silly mood today. Below is the best I could come up with after motivating him with a treat! Oh well, maybe some other time. :)
Have a beautiful weekend!
