I decided to give this project a try because of something that happened to my Aunt Sue, who is super creative and has her own blog too. So what happened was this... she got a stain on a cute pink t-shirt... she splashed some bleach on the stain... waded up the shirt... threw it in the sink... and totally forgot about it. Guess what? The shirt is now a very cute tie-dye shirt! Being that Trouble loves tie-dye, I thought I'd experiment with one of his black shirts that had a weird stain.
I bunched up the shirt and wrapped rubber bands in various spots.
Next I threw the shirt in a tub of water with about 1/2 cup of bleach.
I let the shirt sit in the bleach water for about an hour.
Then I threw the shirt in the washing machine just like this. The rubber bands came off once the shirt was bleach free.
Here's the finished product.
Did I mention that Trouble loves tie-dye?
And I love upcycling!
