DIY: Ombre Tee


Every now and then I get urges to do quick artsy projects and I have to satisfy them or else I go insane. A few weeks ago I did just that. After seeing this bleach pen project on Pinterest, I was itching to try it out, so I bought a bleach pen and went to town. In the project I saw, the person had made a kitschy swirly design on the side of her shirt. I wanted to do something more modern and a little more sophisticated, so I decided to do an ombre pattern by just dabbing dots from the hem up, front and back.

I think it turned out quite well. I wore the shirt out in public once and have since moved it to my pajama drawer not because of the design, but because it’s off-grain. (That’s why I used it for this project, ssshhhh.)

This is a great projects for kids (like, at least 8+, you don’t want chidlins injesting the bleach by accident or otherwise) and teens if you’re looking for something easy, fun, and inexpensive to do.

P.S. I used the entire contents of the pen for this one shirt.
