Bleach art, make your own fabric

Do you like patterned fabric but can never find what you are looking for? Why not make your own?

Indeed make your own! It will take you only an hour and cost hardly anything.

What you need:

  • Fabric, 100%cotton works the best
  • Bleach, the ticker the better
  • Spray bottle,  bottle with small nozzle, pencil with an eraser at the end
  • Masking tape
  • Gloves to protect your hands and plastic for your work service

When you work with bleach make sure you have all the windows open, even better do it outside. protect your hands with gloves and put plastic/bin bags on your work service. Don't wear your finest clothes as you might drop a bit of bleach, or wear an apron.

 In the video tutorial below I show you several ways of bleaching your fabric, how you can make dots, stripes, write words or go all Jackson Pollock ;)

When your bleach has achieved its desired affect, simply rinse and pop it into the washing machine. Now you are ready to make whatever you want out of your own designed fabrics. Turn your cotton into pillowcases, a skirt, a scarf, a table cloth, or make it into wall art like what I will do with mine. How that turns out you can see in next weeks tutorial!
