First, start with freezer paper. It has plastic on one side, paper on the other. We used the number 7 as our stencil, but you could use anything!
Cut out your stencil then iron it onto your fabric. Dry heat for about 20 seconds, until the plastic is fused to the fabric.
Because the shirt was ringed, and I wanted the color to stay true around the neck and sleeves, I covered the rings with tape. Then give a spray bottle of full-strength bleach to your child and let them squirt away.
Once the shirt is drenched with bleach, pull off the freezer paper. Toss the shirt in the washer.6th birthday we made a bleached shirt. A few years ago, I used freezer paper to make some art for John Isaac's room. It's a fun, cheap way to decorate - or make a shirt.
