My First Bleach shirt
I used Stand and Salute for the sentiment. I had plans on doing "Land of the Free because of the Brave" but that was too much to do, while sick like I am (yes AGAIN! It stinks!). This shirt did not come out quite like I thought but I like it I think. What do you think?
For Bobbi and anyone else wanting to know. I used Freezer paper (got it at Walmart in the Reynolds Wrap aisle) Place the freezer paper cut to size on your cricut mat SHINY SIDE DOWN. Make sure it is thoroughly stuck down. Load and cut what you wish using your cricut. Now iron the NEGATIVE cut on a PREWASHED and IRONED Tshirt making sure to get all the edges truly fused to the shirt. You then need to put the center of the "O"s and such down, ironing them also. On this shirt I used a MINI MISTER (Tim Holtz/Ranger) 3/4 with bleach and 1/4 with water. It only took a couple sprays. It will take about 5 minutes for the bleach to start working. Do NOT saturate it as it will seep under the freezer paper stencil no matter what. You can also use fabric paint using the freezer paper cut as a stencil, same process just paint instead of bleach. Hope that helps!
