Custom Bleached T-shirt


Last week was mine and Huzz’s 8th wedding anniversary.  I was in Louisiana, and he was here in SF.  So to celebrate the day, I wore this custom-bleached tee, which I made using Ashley Ann’s amazing freezer paper stencil idea, which I originally saw on her blog, but was reminded of it in an issue of Fresh Style magazine.  Check out my “I love Jordan” shirt.

The process is super easy and fun.  The top I used is a sleeveless t-shirt from Zara that I scored on clearance. You can check out the full how-to on Ashley’s blog, but the short version is this:

cut the words out of freezer paper
iron words onto shirt
spray bleach onto shirt over freezer paper
remove paper and toss the shirt into the wash immediately

cute, huh?
