Seriously, the hardest part of this project was finding freezer paper! No luck at Walmart, Kmart or Target in my town. Finally found some at my local grocery store and I bought a giant roll. (I keep seeing cool projects involving freezer paper stencils so I figured I'd better buy a lot of it!)
I followed the directions found here on the Average Jane Crafter blog. Her tutorial was perfect with great photos and easy-to-follow instructions.
I unearthed a too-small navy t-shirt from the bottom of the drawer and used it as my test subject. Here's what it looked like with the stencil on it just before I bleached it.
I was afraid that, when I rinsed the shirt, I'd end up with bleach spots all over the place. And I worried that, when I chucked the shirt in the wash, I'd inadvertently bleach stuff that I didn't want bleached. But none of that happened. It turned out cool! I like the gritty imperfectness of the image.
Now I'll have to try again with a t-shirt that actually fits me....
