Stars and Stripes, Bleached T-Shirt: DIY.

 This shirt took me about one hour to make, 
the most time consuming part was  cutting out the stencil.
Want to make a quick 4th of July shirt, this one is perfect with
 jean shorts or jeans and has very little drying time.

 Things you need
  1. T-shirt
  2. Scissors
  3. Knife
  4. Star Stencil
  5. Tape
  6. Bleach and water in a small spray bottle
  7. Plastic bag
  8. Cookie sheet
  9. Clear contact paper * optional.

  Print out a star stencil
I covered stencil with contact paper.
then I used my x-acto knife to cut the stars out.

Place your trash bag on the table Then put your shirt on top of the trash bag.
 Place the stars on your shirt then tape off a flag
 Place the cookie sheet in between the shirt
Fill your spray bottle with water and bleach.
 Lightly spray your shirt with the bleach spray, then watch the magic. 
It only takes a few seconds to see the change.
Blot off the excess bleach water with a paper towel.
Remove the tape and stencil and rinse your shirt, or you can wash it with cold water.
Dry on medium heat, or you can hang dry. 

Happy Birthday America.
I hope your day is filled with Family, Love
  and Tons of Yummy Food.
