I found this genius bleach painted shirt diy on A Beautiful Mess a couple months ago done by Jill of Lune and I knew I had to try it! I found the time and the nerve to bleach my shirt yesterday morning. Ha! It was so cool to watch the bleach react like magic to the shirt revealing my hand-lettered quote. I was so giddy to see the result, but very bummed that I had to wash it before I could wear it. :) I think it turned out exactly how I wanted it to. I think the sketching out my quote beforehand helped a lot! I now have my very own personalized tee that is truly unique! Thanks Jill for sharing your tutorial!
Take a look at the process...

You should put this on your to-do list if you have time! It would be perfect for a personalized gift for a friend or even for Dad for Father's Day...next Sunday! Hmm...
So many things I could do with this project :)
